UQ’s Staff Giving Program offers staff the opportunity to support any area within The University of Queensland.

How do you make a gift as a UQ staff member?

There are many ways to support UQ. You can:

• Give by payroll deduction – the most convenient way for most UQ staff to donate

• Donate online

• Make a donation by phone

What are the benefits of giving through payroll deductions?

A payroll deduction enables you to donate money directly through your pay and receive an immediate tax benefit as you give.

By spreading your donations through fortnightly pay deductions over the year, you can ease the financial burden of making a larger one-off donation. There is no requirement for you to collect and track receipts for tax time, as a summary of your payroll deduction donations will be included on your PAYG Summary issued in July each year, for inclusion in your tax return.

How do you set up a payroll deduction?

To participate in Staff Giving via payroll deduction, academic and general staff members must be employed on a continuing or fixed term appointment.

To register, simply complete the Staff Giving Payroll Deduction Form, which you can download here.

Please email your completed and signed form to UQ Advancement at

Can you change a payroll deduction?

Yes, you can change or cancel your payroll deduction. To change a gift amount or destination, please sign and complete a new Staff Giving Payroll Deduction Form and email:

Each year UQ holds a Telephone Engagement Campaign to stay connected with alumni and friends of UQ to raise awareness and support for a wide variety of UQ’s initiatives.

The UQ Calling Crew – a team of committed and enthusiastic students pick up the phone every evening, sharing their stories, updating you on breaking news from UQ's campuses, inviting you to upcoming events, and asking for your support of UQ.

This is a wonderful opportunity for alumni and friends to catch up with what’s happening on UQ's campuses and life since graduating.

When the time comes, we hope you enjoy talking with our calling crew and play a part in supporting UQ.
