2017 Coffee for a Cause

This 10th anniversary year was record breaking! Thank you to all!

In September 2017, our communities came together to share a cuppa and sometimes a sweet treat to enable our students to achieve their academic dreams.

During the campaign the collective power of philanthropy was shown by our staff, students and community. All regional campuses hosted morning teas, coffee shops both on and off campus contributed per coffees sold and through collection jars. With the generous support of UOW Pulse (Rush coffee outlets, IGA and the Uni Shop) matching our 2017 donations, we have raised a record-breaking $9,000, which represents a full three year Learning and Development scholarship.

Over ten years UOW Coffee for a Cause has raised over $37,000 for the Learning and Development Scholarship Fund.  This enables students like Bianca Hunt, a scholarship recipient and Coffee for a Cause student host for the last 2 years, to fulfil educational aspirations.  Hear how the collective power of philanthropy for the UOW Learning and Development Scholarship Fund is life changing.

A special thank you to the participating outlets
