ANU understands every $50k helps

ANU knows a bit about fundraising – what with campus-transforming donations from Graham and Louise Tuckwell with an estimated value of $200m (CMM July 18 2016). But the university also values small sum campaigns, focused on the immediate needs of stuents. Like today’s Giving Day which has a $50 000 target for  rural-regional students to get a start at ANU. The university kicks in $10 000 for every 100 donations, regardless of size. Entirely admirable, except perhaps for the site’s URL , NSW bushranger Captain Thunderbolt was not known for educational philanthropy.
