Support our remarkable research

Our success depends not only on the future generosity of our partners in government and industry, but on support from individuals, community groups and philanthropic organisations.

By supporting the Violence Research and Prevention Program at Griffith University, you are helping to make a positive change in society by reducing violence and its physical, mental and emotional impacts.

Your kind support will enable research to inform and foster effective policies and programs to reduce the impacts of violence on individuals, families, and communities.

Our priorities include, but are not limited to:

  • sexual violence
  • youth violence
  • alcohol/substance use and violence
  • institutional and group violence
  • persistent offenders
  • mental health and violence.

Your kind support will help build knowledge, and inform and foster effective policies and programs to reduce the impacts of violence on individuals, families and communities.

Types of giving

There are many different ways you may give to the Violence Research and Prevention Program. Our Development and Alumni staff will be happy to answer any questions you may have.


A sponsorship helps us achieve a mutually beneficially partnership where money, goods and services are exchanged for naming rights, publication rights and recognition. Sponsorships can create mutually beneficial relationships and assist us in achieving our vision of more effective violence prevention.


A scholarship is a financial award to an individual for the purpose of furthering their education. A scholarship donor is given the opportunity to present their scholarship at Griffith University’s annual awards nights and is recognised in appropriate university publications.


Donors may choose to make donations that are invested for a particular term or even in perpetuity. It is important to discuss such donations with the Development and Alumni Office to ensure that the capital will produce an income stream capable of supporting the project or position of your choosing. The University invests the capital and pays 100% of the interest earned to the particular project or position specified by the donor.


Bequests are very personal gifts, providing a legacy in your will that lasts beyond a lifetime. A bequest can be an amount of money or specific property such as real estate, shares and other investments. Some donors have specific interests that they want to support with their bequest.

Prizes and awards

Establishing a prize or award is easy and can be done for a range of reasons:

  • To remember a family member.
  • To give back to the university.
  • To reward today’s best and brightest students.

Corporate partnerships

Corporate partnerships can deliver strong benefits to both parties. Please contact us for further information.
