Ways to Make a Difference

Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha | The University of Canterbury has a positive impact on lives in New Zealand and overseas - through inspirational teaching, the development and nurturing of talented students who go on to be leaders in their communities and professions, and through research that impacts the everyday lives of people.

We have been fortunate enough to receive philanthropic support throughout our history, and like many universities, donations have allowed us to achieve more than is possible from government funding alone, it allows us to be exceptional. 

Unique to Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha | The University of Canterbury is the impact that philanthropic support can have on the fabric of the campus, our students, and our community in re-building for a 21st century education following the devastating impact of the 2010 and 2011 Canterbury earthquakes. 

Support one of our funds and help us to achieve even more.
