The Curtin Foundation was established in 2009 to promote philanthropy at Curtin and build a culture of giving.
Through the foundation, Curtin seeks donations from individuals and organisations to support University initiatives and projects that help Curtin to make tomorrow better. Donors can direct their gift to specific areas of interest - such as research, scholarships, or building projects - or they can donate money to be used where it is most needed.
One hundred per cent of all philanthropic donations go directly towards the area specified by the donor. Funds raised through the foundation are held in a separate set of accounts within Curtin and are invested in accordance with University guidelines.
