ANU Advancement

ANU Advancement provides support across the University in developing meaningful and sustainable relationships with our alumni and securing long-term philanthropic investment that aligns with the ANU Strategic Plan.

ANU Advancement can support you to:

  • inform, inspire and celebrate our alumni and donors through communications and outreach activities, and
  • identify and build meaningful relationships with donors that create opportunities for philanthropic giving.

We help to ensure that the philanthropic vision for ANU — to maintain our excellence and continue our role in advancing our nation, leading in our region and transforming our world – is shared by our staff and communities.

Together, we can ensure that our community achieves results that lead to a better future for us all.
