Whether you are a graduate, a friend or supporter of the University, by giving to ECU you have the opportunity to improve lives through supporting education and collaborative research.

You can give to ECU in a number of ways, through a one-off gift, a pledge, or a regular gift.

Cultural gifts and gifts of assets

ECU is also able to accept gifts of art, shares, property and other assets.  If you would like to make a cultural gift, or a gift of assets, please contact us for further details.

Corporate partnerships and sponsorship

The University welcomes corporate partnerships and is committed to providing tangible benefits in return for sponsorship support. By working in partnership with companies, we are able to find mutually beneficial ways of supporting the University and the communities in which we serve.

Sponsors can support a range of programs, including:

  • scholarships or prizes
  • research programs
  • buildings and facilities
  • community programs

Through our partnerships we look for outcomes that meet the long and short term needs of students and researchers, as well as the strategic objectives of our partners.

Please contact us to discuss available opportunities.


You can share in our vision and ensure ECU continues to provide a diverse and dynamic learning environment by making a bequest in your Will.  Making a bequest is an uncomplicated way to help underpin the future growth and development of ECU and is a gift that will live on, providing long-term benefits for future generations.


Edith Cowan University (ABN: 54 361 485 361) is endorsed by the Australian Taxation Office as a Deductible Gift Recipient organisation, meaning donations to the University are fully tax-deductible as charitable contributions under the ATO provisions. However we recommend individuals seek independent tax advice.

Note: The operational costs of the ECU Foundation are 100 per cent supported by ECU; no donations are used to cover the administrative costs of the Foundation.
