Almost 12 months ago the University launched “Make the Difference” – our first fund raising campaign with the goal of raising $50 million by 2020.
I’m proud to inform you all that not only have we met our targets two years ahead of schedule, we have set a new goal – to raise another $50 million in gifts and bequests by 2022.
Meeting our target so quickly has been a fantastic achievement and proof that when we are ambitious, set clear goals and work together we can achieve great things.
Thank you to the many generous and passionate donors who made a financial commitment – big and small – to what we do at La Trobe University; your generosity will make a positive difference to the lives of individuals and entire communities that we impact through our teaching, research and community engagement activities.
I will continue to keep you updated on fund raising milestones and beneficiaries of your generosity in coming months.
