University of Tasmania Foundation

About the Foundation

The UTAS Foundation is the fundraising arm of the University, managed by the UTAS Advancement Office. Our activities aim to ensure UTAS remains a vibrant institution - a leader in education that produces quality graduates and research connected to the businesses and industries not only in Tasmania but across Australia and the world.

We assist the University to achieve its mission and strategic objectives by working with our alumni and friends to accept, acknowledge, manage and allocate gifts. Financial support from our alumni and friends is vitally 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 Tasmania.

The UTAS Foundation is governed by an independent board of directors with a CEO responsible for managing the operations of the Foundation. Currently managing over $33 million in funds, the UTAS Foundation is able to support a growing range of programs reflecting the priorities of the University.
