Your philanthropic vision

RMIT can help you bring your philanthropic vision to life and create a legacy for generations to come.

Every gift starts with the desire to make a powerful change, to give back something important, to create a positive legacy for future generations. It’s also about the joy of giving - being able to help others in an area of your passion. 

Our students, researchers and staff embody the real change that is enabled by philanthropy.

Transformational gifts at RMIT

The University was built on a transformational gift in 1887 when Francis Ormond donated to establish The Working Men’s College - with his gift matched by the people of Melbourne.

We would be delighted to talk to you about how to bring your philanthropic vision to life. Get in touch with us and find out more (+61 3 9925 5220).
