Friends of Bouverie

The Bouverie Centre is very fortunate in that we have a wide reaching network of alumni, colleagues and supporters who have contributed to our vision over the years.

Each year in February, we host an Alumni and Friends Celebration to acknowledge the contributions and work of our supporters, as well as to update them on new developments in the sector. This event is held over a fun-filled evening with guest speakers, dinner and live entertainment. 

The next Alumni and Friends Celebration will be held on Thurs, 21 Feb 2019. Themed Re-Connecting Re-Invigoration Re-Launch of Bouverie as a Research Centre in the School of Psychology and Public Health, La Trobe University, the program will feature guest speakers Prof John Dewar (Vice-Chancellor & President, La Trobe University), Nevo Zisin (Non-Binary Writer and Transgender Rights Activist), and Anni Hine Moana (PhD Candidate, La Trobe University).

Give to The Bouverie Centre

Bouverie’s mission is to improve the lives of Australian families and communities, particularly those that are marginalised and vulnerable, and to support the services that provide support to these groups and their individual members.

You can help us make a difference by donating money to a specific project or area that is not covered by our core funding. You can either stipulate an area that you would like to promote or organise a time to meet with the Director to discuss ways that you could achieve the most significant outcomes with your contribution. Possibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • providing a scholarship for students who would otherwise struggle to afford a University award course
  • starting a scholarship fund which would allow scholarships to be offered annually
  • setting up a research program to promote more effective approaches in a particular area of care
  • establishing an endowed research chair
  • contributing to our Taekwondo program
  • setting up another innovative program for families and social/kinship networks seen at our centre

Make a secure financial donation online now or call (03) 9385 5100 to further discuss ways to give.
