Coffee for a Cause

Supporting UTS students in need

UTS Coffee for a Cause 2015

You are invited to help transform the lives of students in need by taking part in UTS Coffee for a Cause! Simply buy a coffee or hot drink from one of the many participating outlets around campus on Monday 31 October 2016 or attend our special Coffee for a Cause morning tea, hosted by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Attila Brungs, at 10.30am in the Tower’s foyer (Level 4).

One dollar from every coffee or hot drink, sold at our participating cafés on 31 October, will go towards critical support for deserving UTS students. Don’t forget the university matches all donations from the day dollar-for-dollar - buying your daily coffee never felt so good! In 2015 the university raised over $8,000, which is equivalent to supporting 16 students with equity grants. We are aiming to exceed the amount of donations this year to assist more students in need.

Donations from the day will go forward to the UTS Staff Giving Program to support these areas: students facing financial hardship; Jumbunna Indigenous House of Learning; and equity grants for thesis completion.

You can also sign up for the UTS Staff Giving Program on the day to be our regular donor from as little as $2 a fortnight! For less than the price of your daily coffee, your support can help provide some of our most dedicated students with financial assistance, which can mean the difference between completing their studies and dropping out. You can make that difference by joining this program.

Take a selfie with your coffee!

Show your support by taking a selfie with your coffee and tagging it with #utscoffeeforacause on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook!

Spread the word and inspire your colleagues and friends to do the same!
