2017 marks the celebration of Curtin University's 50 Years of Innovation, and in this anniversary year we're launching our inaugural Alumni Annual Appeal. The Appeal is an opportunity for you to reconnect with your university, to hear its news and achievements from those closest to the action - Curtin's students - and offers an invitation to be part of Curtin's philanthropic story.

What was your ‘lightbulb moment’ during your time at Curtin?

What was your Curtin lightbulb moment?

We want to hear about your greatest discovery during your time as a Curtin student. Whether this was an academic accomplishment, a personal relationship or a sporting achievement, you're invited to share this, and your experiences since Curtin, with your student caller.

Giving to the Alumni Annual Appeal

Funds raised in the Alumni Annual Appeal will create new opportunities for those students with boundless potential but limited means, and will help get innovative ideas off the ground.

100% of your donation will be used for the cause you choose to support, and we'll keep you informed of the impact of your gift. Gifts to the Appeal are tax-deductible.
