Honouring the generosity of those who have made a substantial and unique contribution


We are deeply grateful for the integral role our donors play within the University of South Australia community and celebrate the substantial and positive difference they continue to make.

Major donors to the University of South Australia will be invited to join one of our distinguished groups: the Chancellor's Club, Hetzel Group, or the College of Benefactors. These exclusive memberships are our sincere expression of gratitude to individuals who have made a substantial impact on our institution.

The Chancellor's Club was established to show our appreciation for our donors, and our valued members are invited to participate in our community through special events and other opportunities to connect.

An invitation from the Chancellor to join this prestigious Club will be extended to those who include a gift in their Will, regardless of the amount, or when their cumulative giving reaches $50,000. Should anonymity be preferred, rest assured that your wishes will be respected. 

Hetzel Group:
Joining the giving community

Named in honour of former Vice Chancellor and renowned medical researcher, Dr Basil Hetzel AC, this group is reserved for exceptional donors contributing $100,000 or more. Membership is extended by personal invitation from the Vice Chancellor.  

New inductees will be welcomed to the Hetzel Group at an event attended by fellow members if they wish. If privacy is preferred, that will be respected.
