The Nepean Philanthropist are people in business and professions who have the capacity and interest to give back to their local community.
Initiated by John Bateman in 2006, who was a long serving member of the previous Foundation’s council, he felt that many people in our area would be prepared to give to a cause where the money donated would be spent appropriately to support research at Nepean with tangible results.
Each year, Research Grants are awarded to local researchers to advance their projects. With thanks to donors of the NMRF over $75,000 was awarded in 2014.
The opportunity to be a Nepean Philanthropist continues and we welcome new donors. This group commit to giving, either personally or through their business, a tax deductible, minimum donation of $2,500 per year for five years.
These donors are included as part of the University’s wider donor community and are invited to and welcome to attend events on the Camperdown campus. Again, we wish to thank our donors and, with the exception of those who wish to remain anonymous, each year they are acknowledged via the University’s University's honour roll.
