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 $5000 worth of freshly cut daffodils were sold on campus in 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.
