The University of Tasmania Foundation is the vital fundraising arm of the University. Its activities help to ensure our University remains a vibrant institution - a leader in education that produces quality graduates and research connected to the businesses and industries of Tasmania.
Gifts to the Foundation promote excellence, innovation and participation. Support from our alumni and friends is critically important to ensure that the University continues to fulfil its mission as Tasmania's university and is able to make a significant contribution to the cultural, economic and social development of the state.
Your donation will help get things started.

The family and friends of Leo Cooper-White, together with the UTAS Foundation, are seeking support for the Leo Cooper-White Memorial Scholarship Appeal which will establish a scholarship at the University of Tasmania’s School of Visual and Performing Arts (SVPA). Leo was a third year student at the UTAS School of Visual and Performing Arts. On 18 March 2011, Leo’s life was cut short in a tragic accident. We are aiming to raise $30,000 which the UTAS Foundation has agreed to match dollar for dollar. Read more | Donate now | Download Donation Form (PDF 46.8KB).
Arthur Cobbold Memorial Lecture Appeal
No early alumnus of the UTAS School of Medicine needs an introduction to Arthur Cobbold. From 1964, when he arrived as Foundation Professor of Physiology, to his retirement 21 years later – with 13 of those years as Dean of Medicine – he very much shaped the School and the lives of many of those in it. It is a fitting memorial to the late Professor Cobbold that an annual lecture on contemporary medical issues will again influence medical thinking in Tasmania and that the support to endow this lecture in perpetuity will come from those who were themselves most closely influenced by his work and mentorship.
