About the VU Foundation
The VU Foundation is a trust with VU Foundation Limited acting as the trustee. While a separate entity to Victoria University, the Foundation's purpose is to support and maintain the University to develop and maintain standards and services. This includes assisting with the development of strategic partnerships and securing financial support for our programs.
The Foundation operates its own accounts and submits separate financial statements to the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC). Management is vested in a Board of Directors, which provides strategic advice on the development of the Foundation, and guidance on fundraising initiatives, priorities and policies.
The Foundation does not employ any staff. VU provides staffing support through its Advancement Office. The Director of Advancement undertakes the role of Executive Officer of VU Foundation.
