What is Phil'?

Phil' is Australia's largest student-led philanthropy initiative. Our aim is to unite UNSW students, staff, alumni and the local community to get behind a very worthy local cause each year.

Since starting in 2016, Phil' has donated over $480 529 to 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 their medical procedures and make sure they don’t miss out on having a fun childhood! Our volunteers are working around the clock to help reach our insane target of $50,000 this year, in order to reach a grand total of OVER 1/2 A MILLION DOLLARS!


Term 2 is Jampacked full of incredible activities for Phil volunteers and the wider UNSW community to join!! 

Our goal with Phil is to connect you, the students to the kids in need! We are aiming in all of our activities this term to incorporate the key values of the child life and music therapists in all we do! 

So if you're looking to help the kids first hand, make friends with likeminded values or just have some fun then check out the links below to see what awesome things Phil has to offer this term!
