Bond University digs deep for charities on Open Day

Everyone from the homeless to indigenous youth and children suffering from autism spectrum disorder benefitted from the Bond University Open Day held July 14.

Bond University’s Open Day attracts families from around Australia annually, and this year Bond used it to assist in fundraising for the multiple charities that the student body and academics provide support for throughout the year.

University Vice-chancellor and President, Professor Tim Brailsford, said the Bond University community did a lot of work with charities and community causes that went largely unnoticed.

“Our students and academics do a fantastic job across a whole range of areas and our open day is a great opportunity for people to not only see what Bond offers them personally, but what Bond does to make our overall community a better place,” he said.

Each of Bond University’s faculties and institutes raised awareness for a charity in which their students, academics and alumni work closely.

Bond physiotherapy program students, as part of their course, have to raise a minimum of $800 for four community non-profit organizations. The students in four separate groups raised money for Bond Children’s Camp, NSW Police Legacy Fund, Headway Inc and Fijian Physiotherapy school. Funds raised were presented to the organizations prior to the open day.

The university also handed out information bags to everyone who attended, each containing a “Token of Goodwill.” The attendees were asked to lodge the tokens with the faculty or charity in which they have the most interest. At the end of the day, the faculties and institutes with the most tokens were provided with additional funding to use in their chosen charity area.
