Fountain of Giving

Celebrating lifelong connections  

From its earliest days, Bond has fostered an extraordinary sense of ‘family’ that embraces students, alumni, staff and community members who share our spirit of innovation, excellence and leadership.

For more than 30 years, our alumni have taken Bond’s core values of innovation, inspiration, and influence to every corner of the globe, incorporating them into their businesses, not-for-profit organisations, political activism, community service and, most importantly, their families.  

The project was launched in 2005 as the Garden of Learning, which included a pathway of brick pavers engraved with alumni names and degrees. In 2014, it became the Fountain of Giving – a centrepiece decorated with a display of commemorative plaques donated by alumni, students, staff, industry partners and community organisations. Plaques can also be purchased by corporations, sporting clubs, groups and alumni or students' family members who wish to show their support.
