The impact of your donation

When you choose to support Deakin, you join us in striving to change lives and transform communities through vital education and research.

Striving for future generations

Philanthropic support is woven into our fabric. It plays a critical role in driving new opportunity, innovation and excellence across education and research at Deakin, and has a real impact across the many communities we serve.

When we opened the doors to the Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus, we became Victoria’s first regional university. Today, our graduates and researchers make a real difference around the world as global leaders, innovators and professionals.

The dKin Difference

The dKin Difference magazine, launched in 2020, is our inaugural donor impact report. This publication highlights the impact our donor community is making at, with and through Deakin.

Whether it’s creating solutions through breakthrough research, supporting the future ambitions of a student on scholarship, or helping translate research outcomes back to the community, we recognise and are exceptionally grateful for this impact that philanthropy continues to have.
