Giving Day 2021* is a 24-hour campaign celebrating the impact of philanthropy at Western Sydney University.

On Giving Day, students, staff, alumni and the University community will join together to support scholarships, students, research and innovative programs at Western.

What we do today, has an enormous impact on tomorrow. We have 24 hours to make a difference. Are you in?

*The Giving Day Walk and the Chancellor's Challenge will be run in accordance with the COVID-Safety Plan for this event, University’s COVID-Safe guidelines and the latest NSW Government health advice.

The Giving Day Walk starts at Lake Parramatta, winding around Parramatta Park to CommBank Stadium, through the CBD and then along Parramatta River to a celebratory finish at the University's Parramatta South Campus, Rydalmere.

Western Sydney University acknowledges that the Giving Day Walk takes place on the land of the Darug people, the traditional owners of this land, and also acknowledges the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who reside within this area.

Together, let's make a difference.
