Community fundraising

Curtin Community Projects provides you with opportunities to get involved with a range of not-for-profit organisations. With both students and staff participating, these events are a chance to raise valuable funds for worthy causes, while having fun and meeting new people.

Daffodil Day

Raise money for the Cancer Council WA. Volunteer at this fundraising event to help raise money for vital cancer research. All you need is enthusiasm and a willingness to participate. As part of the Curtin Community Projects team, you will be selling merchandise and fresh daffodils, and collecting much-needed donations.

Over 6000 freshly cut daffodils were sold on campus in 2018, and we’re aiming to better this in August 2019.

Parkerville Children and Youth Care

Make a difference to young people through Parkerville Children and Youth Care.

The Parky Christmas Appeal appeals to provide gifts to vulnerable children and young people at this special time of year. The Curtin Community Projects team organise collection days throughout November and December for Christmas gifts donated by our generous students and staff.

More than 100 gifts were donated in 2018.

Perth Children's Hospital Foundation

Curtin Community Projects support the Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation in ensuring Western Australia’s sick and injured children receive the best possible healthcare. Dress in fun, crazy outfits to sell merchandise and collect donations around campus. Don’t forget to come along for the Zoolander Walkoff.

All money raised in 2019 supported the Music Therapy Program at Perth Children’s Hospital.

World's Greatest Shave

Help raise money for the Leukaemia Foundation. Join the Curtin Community Projects team and shave or colour your hair for the World’s Greatest Shave.

“Curtin University is one of the Leukaemia Foundation’s biggest supporters in Western Australia. The university has taken part in the World’s Greatest Shave for 15 years and during this time have raised over $300,000 for the Foundation. We are extremely grateful for the contribution Curtin University has made to support Western Australian families impacted by blood cancer.”
– Andrew York, General Manager, Leukaemia Foundation WA

The World’s Greatest Shave will be held in March 2019.
