Creating a brighter future for all

At Griffith University, we are committed to creating a brighter future for all. In 2023 we publicly launched our first comprehensive philanthropic campaign so that we could partner even more deeply with our alumni, donors and supporters to help achieve that mission through life-changing scholarships and transformative research.

We set an ambitious goal of raising $125 million and through the generosity of our donors, we are proud to have already raised $100 million to allow our research, education and engagement to have an even greater impact.

Our campaign has five key philanthropic priorities, where together with our partners, we can pioneer new ways to help those who need it most.

Together, we can do the things that matter today to create a brighter future for all.

Meaningful engagement with our alumni community

Your University. Your Community.

Our aspiration of a brighter future for all also includes how we best engage the talents and motivations of our alumni, 
the largest part of our Griffith community.

As a result, we aim to have 100,000 meaningful engagements with our alumni through Campaign building on opportunities for volunteering, mentoring, networking and communications.

“The Brighter Futures Scholarship has been tremendously helpful. It has given me the stability and peace of mind to keep my attention focused on my studies.

I will be forever grateful, and I will continue to give back to others as my way of saying thank you.”

With the financial pressure off my shoulders, my head can think straight. My mind isn’t constantly fretting about how I’m going to pay for this or how I’ll get through that situation.

This whole parasite malaria vaccine is the first of its kind because it could be freeze-dried into a powder or frozen without losing its effectiveness. This means it can be easily deployed into malaria endemic countries.
