Making a Difference
Griffith is very grateful to all their staff who generously donate to the Staff Giving Program. Griffith’s Staff Giving Program represents the first important step in building a culture of giving within the University. All proceeds raised go to the Students’ Future Fund and the University is committed to matching every dollar donated.
It is very easy for any staff member to participate by simply donating to the Annual Appeal or going online to complete the Payroll Deduction Form, which can have the amount altered or payment ceased at anytime.
Every gift counts regardless of the amount. For as little as $2 (pre-tax) per pay period, staff can help make a difference and be counted as a member of our growing community who give in a special way.
Giving back to Griffith
Through education, research and community service the University shapes our society. As staff we understand this more than most. A gift to Griffith University will make a difference because education is important to our future; and because together we can create a better future.
Contributing to the Staff Giving Program is a personal choice and each staff member has their own reason to give. Griffith’s staff already give their time, dedication, skills and knowledge because they believe in the organisation’s vision. Giving a financial gift is another way to ensure that students have the opportunity to complete their studies regardless of their financial situation.
The Staff Giving Program will help Griffith University to support students experiencing financial hardship to access university education and graduate successfully.
The goal of the Staff Giving Program is to increase the opportunity for our students to be supported in their academic life through scholarships and bursaries. It is staff participation, not the size of the gift, which sends a powerful message to the broader community that Griffith staff are firm believers in the power of education.
Academic, general and casual staff members are eligible to participate in the Staff Giving Program.
Academic and general staff members who are employed on a continuing appointment or fixed term are eligible to donate through either payroll deduction or the Annual Appeal.
Casual staff who wish to donate can donate through the Annual Appeal, Online Donation Form, or by credit card over the phone.
How to participate
The Staff Giving Program is set up so that donations can be made from pre-tax salaries.
To contribute to the Staff Giving Program, staff on a continuing or fixed term contract can complete and submit online the Payroll Deduction Form which can be accessed through the Portal.
Staff members are able to stop participating in the Program at any time and can increase or decrease the amount they wish to contribute at any time. There is no minimum amount staff must contribute to participate, every dollar donated helps make a difference to the lives of students in financial difficulty.
