COVID-19 Advice for the JCU Community - Last updated: 21 January 2022, 8am (AEST)


You can be a champion of change by donating to a JCU cause you care about.

You can join our community of donors who are making a lasting impact on the student experience at JCU. Your donation can support students facing hardships, allow a student to undertake mandatory placement or work integrated learning experiences or support potentially lifesaving research that makes life better in the tropics.

See the options for your donation.

Siva and Su honour their daughter, Dr Roobiny Sivananthan (BVetSc, 2011) by supporting students at JCU. Roobiny worked as a veterinarian in the remote communities of North West Queensland and Mornington Island where she was passionate about animal welfare. Su and Siva's gift supports future veterinarians gain experience working in remote and rural communities, they hope by gaining an understanding of the challenges faced in these areas future veterinarians will carry on Roobiny's work helping these communities.

Colin Dempster

Colin is not a JCU alumnus, but has lived in Townsville most of his life. He started his donor journey with JCU by creating an academic prize in nursing to honour his mother and father in 2017. Since then, Colin has donated even more money so this prize will generate enough interest each year so it can be awarded in perpetuity. He later created another endowed prize in physiotherapy and he is leaving a planned gift for JCU in his will. Colin has also made arrangements to donate his body to JCU’s Human Bequest Program when the time comes.

We salute Colin for being a role model with his generosity and thoughtfulness.
