Philanthropy makes a difference
Donors make invaluable impact
The work we do at UQ’s Faculty of Medicine plays a vital role in building a healthier world. Our donors and supporters are essential partners in that endeavour; their vision and generosity elevate UQ’s impact, reach and results.
Donor generosity help build The University of Queensland into the world-class institution it is today. Siblings Dr James O’Neil Mayne and Miss Mary Emelia Mayne donated the land on which the St Lucia campus proudly stands today. The Maynes also made significant monetary gifts, and both ultimately left their entire estates to UQ. Today, the more than 3000 donors who make gifts to UQ each year share in the heritage of giving and commitment to creating an environment in which exceptional people and ideas flourish.
Contributions from people like you are fundamental to our mission to educate and empower young people who will advance knowledge, provide care and develop solutions as they tackle local and global challenges and ultimately move society forward. Every gift makes a powerful difference.

- supporting and enabling community outreach programs
