A student-led philanthropy initiative to raise funds to help sick kids!


Thanks to the generosity of the UNSW community we have raised $110,913 to help sick kids. 

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. Fundraising for an incredibly worthy local cause. We put the FUN in fundraising. 

Last year (the inaugural year) we raised $34,833 for our neighbors at the Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick. Every cent going to Child Life and Music Therapy.This year our aim was to raise $50,000 for them, so far we have raised $76,080!

The 24-Hour Fun-A-Thon was held on Thursday 12 – Friday 13 October. For 24 hours, 25 teams of 8 UNSW students and staff (that's 200 people!) moved & grooved continuously to raise funds to help sick kids. Show your support by making a donation. Even the smallest donation will make an impact.

Together we can make a BIG difference for little kids!
