Community giving

Community giving is more than charity. It allows us to contribute to the common good through building ongoing relationships with external organisations that work with those experiencing disadvantage or marginalisation.

Connect to a need in your community

Each year, ACU Engagement and Campus Ministry conduct five national community giving drives in partnership with external community organisations that assist people experiencing marginalisation or disadvantage. These drives invite staff and students to donate various goods, as identified by our community partners, to meet authentic community needs.
