Do Good Phil Good

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 $500,000 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!

Sign up to volunteer with Phil in 2024

In 2023 Phil volunteers made new friends, held over 20 events on campus, met the team in charge at the Sydney Children's Hospital and raised over $50,000 for the Child life and music therapists!

Applications are closed for Term 1 but will re-open in Term 2

But don't just take our word for it, here are some quotes from Phil 2023 volunteers!

"Try everything! Don't be afraid to put yourself out there and meet everyone in Phil and beyond. My one regret was not joining earlier in the year."
