Arc Philanthropy

Arc Philanthropy (Phil') volunteers put the fun in fundraising through bake sales, barbecues, the Charity Concert, Personal Challenges and the 24 Hour Fun-A-Thon. Phil' volunteers make a huge difference by uniting the entire UNSW community (staff, students, alumni) behind a local charity.


Phil' volunteers run fundraising activities on campus and in the local community to raise money for kids at Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick.
