The Mayne Circle recognises the generosity of donors who have had an extraordinary, transformative impact on the lives of students, the outcomes of research, and the preservation of culture and teaching at UQ.

The Mayne Circle is named in honour of Dr James O’Neil Mayne and his sister, Miss Mary Emelia Mayne, who, through a series of transformative gifts in the 1920s, enabled the University to secure the St Lucia Campus. Their gifts also supported the University’s establishment of the UQ Medical School, which houses the largest medical program in Australia.

The Mayne Circle is an exclusive society that recognises benefactors who have donated at the highest level with lifetime giving of $1,000,000 or greater. 

Members play a pivotal role in creating change for existing and future generations of students, teachers, and researchers, by providing them with the means to achieve international levels of excellence.

Members are provided with regular opportunities to engage with the Vice-Chancellor and President, students, researchers and senior UQ leadership at exclusive University events throughout the year. These events include an annual private dinner, Celebration of Giving and complimentary tickets to the Global Leadership Series. Members are also provided with an annual and personalised impact of giving report.
