2017 Coffee for a Cause coming soon…

This September is the 10th UOW Coffee for a Cause. The generosity of staff, students and community, together with coffee outlets on and off campus, has raised over $27,000 for student equity scholarships. Testimony to what we can achieve together!

Simply by drinking coffee and getting together with colleagues and friends, you can make a difference.

UOW Coffee for a Cause runs annually and is part of the UOW Cares® Staff Workplace Giving program. The Coffee for a Cause campaign supports students to reach their full potential by raising funds for the UOW Learning and Development Scholarship Fund for student equity scholarships.

Your support is needed more than ever, with record numbers of students applying.

You can help by:

  • Hosting a morning or afternoon tea. It’s a great excuse to get the team together or catch up with friends whilst making a difference. Contact community@uow.edu.au for your hosting kit.
  • Purchasing a coffee from participating outlets at Wollongong campus, as 20 cents from each coffee purchased during 4th – 10th September will be donated.
  • While out and about in Wollongong from 1–30 September, drop your gold coins into the collection box at selected outlets displaying a poster.
  • Tag your coffee photo with #UOWCoffee4aCause and tag your participating outlet for your chance to win 1 week’s free coffee.

With your support we’ll make 2017 the best year yet!
