Sandstone Society

The Sandstone Society is named in honour of the beautiful and robust material that has formed the foundations of UQ.

Like the sandstone structures of the Great Court, the generosity of Sandstone Society donors supports and upholds the University by helping to propel its students, researchers, and teachers to levels of global excellence.

The Sandstone Society is a community of generous donors who are compelled to act now to create change and have demonstrated philanthropic support by giving $50,000 or greater during their lifetime.

Sandstone Society members are invited to a range of exclusive events, including the annual Celebration of Giving. This event allows UQ’s senior leadership to thank Society members and recognise their contributions to the University while also providing Sandstone Society members the opportunity to engage with students, teachers and researchers whose lives have been transformed through philanthropy.

Your support makes a difference

Feeding the world, curing a disease, or enhancing the student experience. Wherever your passion lies, together we can strive to achieve our common goal for a better world. 

Thank you!

The University of Queensland acknowledges the support of its donors.

With the support of donors, UQ is able to create change by empowering student success, transforming teaching and learning, and driving discovery and impact. These achievements are only made possible because of the generosity of our donors, alumni, friends, industry partners and foundations.
