STAFF GIVING

Your support helps students who are experiencing personal or financial hardship

Staff generosity can help change students’ lives

Thanks to the generosity of staff, in 2017 the Students’ Future Fund has been able to provide 73 Griffith Futures Scholarships.

The Staff Giving Program at Griffith allows staff to make a fortnightly payroll deduction pre-tax, to provide students who are excelling at their studies despite facing hardship, with life-changing financial support.

Griffith will match your support dollar for dollar

100% of your donation goes directly to students as the University absorbs all administration costs

Your donation is deducted from your fortnightly pay using your pre-tax salary, removing the need to collect receipts.

When it comes to Staff Giving at Griffith, it is participation, not gift size that is important.

Staff can give with confidence knowing that all deductions are matched dollar for dollar by the University and that 100% of donations go directly to the students.

There’s no minimum amount required to join the program and you can stop and start at any time. It only takes one minute to join and once set up, there’s nothing else to do.

Please show your support for students in need by joining the Staff Giving Program. Many more students need your help..

Catherine Longworth, Staff Giver

I have nothing but respect for students, who are going through hard times and yet remain determined to succeed. There is a ripple effect that is so positive and it's why I encourage my colleagues to become involved in Staff Giving.

TOGETHER, STAFF MAKE AN IMPACT

When it comes to Staff Giving at Griffith, it is participation, not gift size that is important.

There is no minimum amount you must contribute to participate in the program. Every dollar makes a difference, as when combined with other staff members, will create an impact.

For example, a Griffith Futures Scholarship of $5,000 is established when:

10 staff members contribute $10 per fortnight, for one year and matched by the University.

20 staff members contribute $5 per fortnight, for one year and matched by the University.

40 staff members contribute $2.50 per fortnight, for one year and matched by the University.

Message from the DVC (Engagement)

As a staff member at Griffith University, you are already supporting our students in so many ways through the work you do.

However, by making a gift through our Staff Giving Program, you have the power to truly enrich a student’s journey.
