At ACU there is also a focus on 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 and/or marginalisation.
ACU community giving allows staff and students to connect to a need within the community through donating goods. ACU Engagement in partnership with Campus Ministry supports 5 community giving drives each calendar year. We make a consistent commitment to these drives and the organisations they support. For many staff, this begins a pathway to further community engagement initiatives at ACU and beyond.
