A GOOD CUPPA A GREAT WAY TO SUPPORT STUDENTS

One future scholarship holder can raise a glass – or in this case a coffee cup – to the campus cafes, their clientele and the University’s Community Engagement team after the annual fundraising campaign, Coffee For A Cause.
The week-long campaign, now in its eighth year, raised more than $3000, which is donated to the university’s Learning and Development fund and will help finance support for one of the scholarship holders for a year.
Coffee For A Cause has been growing each year and involves a 20 cent donation from participating cafes on campus for every coffee sold during the designated week. This year the University’s satellite campuses at Shoalhaven, Bega and Moss Vale also participated for the first time, hosting morning teas at which donations to the Learning and Development Fund could be made.
The Learning and Development Fund supports students in need. Ten Learning and Development scholarships are offered each year valued at $3000 per year over three years which are only made possible by the generosity of supporters of UOW including alumni, staff and the wider community. Melanie Dinnie, pictured above, is a former scholarship holder and is an enthusiastic supporter of the Coffee For A Cause campaign.
To help support the Learning and Development Fund you can donate online or call the office of Development on 4221 3042. All donations over $2 are tax deductible.
