The University of Auckland has launched an ambitious fundraising campaign that seeks to achieve great things for New Zealand and the world.   Through partnerships with supporters and donors the University aims to address some of the biggest, most vital questions facing our communities.   Can we change the future together?

Retiring professor and husband leave ‘unprecedented’ $1 million farewell gift

Campaign total reaches $200 million

The fundraising total for the University of Auckland Campaign For All Our Futures has reached the $200 million mark, thanks to a $1 million gift from Professor Louise Nicholson and her husband Jon.


Can we earthquake-proof New Zealand?

Researchers at the University are examining ways of minimising loss and damage, and speeding recovery, after major earthquakes.


Can we restore our unique natural environment?

New Zealand has one of the worst records in loss of native species.  We are in danger of wiping out the very elements that define us and make us unique.  Can we work together to give future generations richer, healthier and more uniquely New Zealand surroundings?


Can we prevent adult disease before birth?

We have before us the opportunity not only to create the optimal environment for our babies, but also to ensure that they will have improved health as adults.


Can we work in partnership?

Achieving the audacious and aspirational requires commitment and continuity, and the security of knowing that support is there – in advocacy and in philanthropy. There are many ways you can assist the University’s people and their work.
