Giving to Deakin: Investing in Education and Innovation

Give to Deakin

Your gift to Deakin University can be structured in the way that best suits your wishes, interests and circumstances.

Ways to give

There are several ways you can give to Deakin:

  • funds in perpetuity - where the donated sum is invested and the interest earned is used to fund the project
  • single gifts to fund a specific project
  • gifts where payments towards a total amount are spread over three to five years
  • gifts in-kind - a non-monetary gift such as works of arts, equipment, expertise or your time. This kind of giving can be just as valuable as cash donations.
  • deferred giving - where you formalise your intention to make a gift to Deakin at a time in the future through a bequest or annuities and life insurance.

Deakin can also leverage a donation to secure government and other philanthropic funding.

Deakin University is endorsed as a Deductible Gift Recipient by the Australian Tax Office.  Donations to Deakin of $2 or more are tax-deductible and an official receipt will be issued for tax purposes. As donations can carry legal, financial and tax implications, Deakin University suggests you seek independent advice before exercising any of these options.

Acknowledgement of donations

As a donor, you will receive regular updates about the University and invitations to University events. The impact of your gift will be documented and reported to you on an annual basis. You may receive progress reports or testimonials from students whose lives are transformed by scholarships; photos which plot the progress of building works and the advancement of Deakin, or details about the outcomes of research projects.
