As an institution founded on philanthropy, it is no surprise that UOW staff share a generous and compassionate spirit. Since 2007, academic and professional staff have come together to support causes close to their heart through the UOW Cares® program.
UOW Cares® provides opportunities for staff at UOW to make a real difference by making regular donations to charitable organisations. By giving through their pay, staff at UOW not only reduce their taxable income but also provide a regular funding stream for a range of worthy causes, focused on helping communities and individuals reach their full potential.
Through UOW Cares®, individual contributions are amplified, as our collective philanthropy has a huge impact, both locally and globally.
