Workplace giving at VU

At VU we are committed to providing each student with the transformative opportunities and supportive environment they require to achieve success.

However, we know that many things affect a student's capacity to reach their potential, such having to pay for travel to and from university, or being able to buy textbooks or a computer. Some of our students do not even have the comfort of a secure home.

For these reasons and more, our Creating Opportunity Fund provides the resources to assist as many students as we can over the course of their study. By providing scholarships and financial aid to those in crisis, we can nurture our students and support them as they realise their full potential.

How you can help

As a valued VU staff member, your donation to the Creating Opportunity Fund through Workplace Giving will provide meaningful support for some of our most deserving students.

Together we can help more students succeed. Your donation deducted from each pay will directly assist our students.

Leave a bequest

Leaving a gift in your will to Victoria University ensures a lasting legacy by creating opportunities for future generations to access education and training.

There are several types of bequests including:

  • a residual bequest (what is left of your estate once all legacies and costs have been paid)
  • a percentage of an estate
  • a pecuniary bequest (a specific sum)
  • assets such as real estate, shares and/or works of art.

You can make a bequest in your own name, or you can choose to honour someone important in your life by making a bequest in their name.

No matter what form your bequest takes, we will ensure it's directed to the right area to achieve your intentions.

If you are considering leaving a bequest to VU, we encourage you to contact the Advancement Office so we can provide further guidance on the process.
