Get ready to give!

26 May 2021

On G-Day, USC’s annual giving day, the USC community comes together to support students and initiatives that matter to us.

Juggling financial, family, work and study commitments isn’t easy for any student. However, some students face real obstacles, disadvantage and financial hardship during their study. The pressure can become too much and capable students give up hope of completing and drop out.

On G-Day we hope to change this. Giving to student support provides funds for Study Support Bursaries (open to apply now!) to make a difference for students who need just a little extra help to keep them on track to achieve their study goals at USC.

We’ve got big goals, but we know that, working together, our small acts of kindness can achieve a lot.

Can you help? If you’d like to help on G-Day, there are opportunities to donate and fundraise for an area that matters to you. Help spread the word and become a fundraising champion – it’s easy! Get behind G-Day and let’s watch the kindness grow and change everything for our students, communities and our vulnerable wildlife.
