Giving to Notre Dame

Notre Dame is committed to providing excellence in teaching, scholarship and research, and to establishing projects and programs that benefit our students and the wider community.

The University of Notre Dame Australia is a unique Australian university. Established as a university by an Act of Parliament in 1989 and as a Catholic university by a Canonical Statute in 1991, we embrace both the modern Australian university tradition and the ancient and esteemed traditions of Catholic universities in Europe, North America and Asia. With campuses in Fremantle, Sydney and Broome, Notre Dame meets stringent quality and reporting standards set down by Government. Our professional degrees such as accountancy, education, law, medicine, nursing and physiotherapy are assessed and approved by independent accreditation bodies.

Our activities are based on the Christian belief that each individual deserves respect, support and love. From our personalised admissions process, through to the academic and extra-curricular activities available, every student is valued and respected as an individual member of the community.

As a contemporary Australian Catholic university, we have established strengths in Health and Education and have assumed a special role in the education of and service to the Indigenous people of Australia. All of our degrees are designed to encourage our students to develop theoretical, analytical and practical skills, as well as life skills, with an understanding of sound ethics and decision making.

These and other features of Notre Dame make it unique.

Your generosity and commitment can help to make a real impact on the lives of our students, our research endeavours, to our work and to our mission.

There are many ways you can make a lasting contribution to Notre Dame.  You have the choice where you would like to allocate your gift, be it towards a specific School or program, or to be unrestricted, allowing the University to allocate funds where they are most needed.

Your gifts allow us to continue to provide an exciting and enriching educational experience for students and can also make a difference to the causes you care about on a local and global scale. You may choose to give to fulfill your philanthropic aspirations as well as your financial plans, to honour the people you hold dear, or to strengthen and celebrate the Notre Dame community. Whatever the reason, together gifts of all sizes add up to make a big difference.
