Starfish Staff Giving supports students in financial need.
Around one in five USC students come from low income backgrounds and there are many who struggle to balance long work hours, study and family commitments. For some, the pressure is too much and they drop out without realising their full potential.
Currently around 80 staff regularly contribute to supporting students in need. As our university continues to grow and students face various challenges, they need our help more than ever.
How you can help
Join the growing number of Starfish Staff Giving supporters by making regular donations through payroll deductions and help provide a lifeline for our students.
100% of your donation goes towards providing a Study Support Bursary to a student in financial need and any donation over $2 is tax deductible*.
*From 1st July 2020 all payroll deductions will be pre-tax. The tax advantage will be realised immediately in each pay period and you will not need to lodge a claim in your annual tax return.
