Arc's Phil' is Australia's largest student-led philanthropy initiative. Our mission is to unite all UNSW students, staff, alumni and the local community to do good and Phil' good. 

In the inaugural year (2016) Phil' raised $34,833 last year we raised $76,403 that's $111,236 going directly to help sick kids.

This year our aim is to raise $85,000+ for Child Life and Music Therapy at Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick. The therapists use play and music to help hospitalised babies, kids and teens manage pain, understand medical procedures and make sure they don’t miss out on having a fun childhood! They empower sick children by;

  • Normalising the hospital environment
  • Reducing anxiety and promoting self-esteem
  • Providing education and support to children, and their families

Meet Team Wonderphil' 

We are a group of student volunteers dedicated to putting the FUN in fundraising! 

Weekly you'll see us around campus with the guessing jars, bubbles, cupcakes, raffles and other surprises. We also run large-scale FUNdraiser events including the Phil’ Charity Concert, Gala Ball and the 24 hr Fun-a-Thon! 

We spend our weekends at Bunnings doing barbecues and bake sales. We'll be participating in Pedal4Kids and City2Surf (join us!). 

Thanks to the hard work of these volunteers and the generosity of the UNSW community so far in 2018 we have raised: $9,119.55

We are getting closer to our target with: $75,880.45 to go.
