Philanthropy

RMIT’s Philanthropy team builds and fosters an active, inspired community of donors and supporters; leveraging their generous support to help the University reach its strategic goals.

This includes delivering long-term funding pipelines for student support and research through targeted donor relations, philanthropic asks and campaigns, and the coordination of philanthropic grant applications.

What we do 

Philanthropy's activities include:

  • informing, inspiring and involving donors through communications, activities and value add programs and benefits
  • major gift fundraising to identify key supporters, build relationships and foster meaningful opportunities for philanthropic giving
  • knowledge management and service delivery via the Raiser’s Edge database.
