"I have contributed to the DSG programme since its inception. I do so because Massey has provided me with many opportunities so it's one way for me to give back to those initiatives which I really believe are important to Massey and to me. Plus, of course, the great tax rebates!"
Campus Registrar - Auckland
"As an alumnus and current staff member, Massey University has provided me with many opportunities to learn, grow and be successful. The DSG programme enables me pay it forward, to support others to reach for their dreams and find their own opportunities."
Data Management Specialist, ITS
"Massey University provides extraordinary opportunities for so many people worldwide and a wonderful environment in which to work. The Foundation provides me with a great vehicle to 'pay it forward' and to help grow and develop opportunities for others that wouldn't otherwise be possible. The payroll scheme is such an easy way to do this."
Dr Peter Jolly
Project Manager, Institute of Veterinary, Animal and Biomedical Sciences
"There is a bit of truth in the old adage that it is better to give than receive. Contributing to the Direct from Salary Giving programme through the payroll scheme puts a big smile on my face more so than spending that money on junk food.
I have no qualms giving back to Massey University albeit in a small way what it has given me over the past eight years in abundance."
Professor Selwyn Katene
Director, Global Centre for Indigenous Leadership, Massey University
"I give to the Foundation because I believe in the Enabling Excellence Fund - our success can be measured by our students' achievement. How we support them to progress directly reflects back upon us - DSG makes it easy to Do Something Good!"
Designer, Massey University Design Studio
"I give to the Foundation because it feels like a small but real hand I can give to students whose goals are lofty but whose resources might be slender. I'm particularly mindful that students - awesome, committed, knowledgeable, tough students - sometimes face difficulties we in the innards of the University know nothing about. If I can contribute to scholarships or grants or programmes that will help those students reach a bit further, get closer to achieving that lofty goal, then I can make a difference not just to one student but to a wider family and a wider community beyond that. This means a lot to me!"
Dr Elizabeth Gray
Associate Head of the School of Communication, Journalism and Marketing, Massey Business School
"Supporting the Foundation means I can make a difference by helping give more students the opportunity to follow their desire to study at Massey University. And the payroll scheme makes it easy, while also ensuring the tax credits are received."
Dr Claire Matthews
Director of Academic Programmes, Massey Business School
"Massey University is only as strong as we make it. By giving back I hope to support the Foundation's worthy causes, but also to strengthen the community that sustains us all. Small amounts can grow into a big difference."
SMSI Business Intergrator, Schol of Communication, Journalism and Marketing
"I give to the Foundation through DSG because I believe strongly in what the University is trying to achieve and because I think it is crucial that if I ask others to give - whether staff, alumni or other external stakeholders - I can say that I'm personally giving to support the University."
Professor Ted Zorn
Pro Vice-Chancellor, Massey Business School
"I believe the foundation is able to use the fund to help talented students in need, to make a positive impact on their lives. Also, I have personally benefited from receiving higher education, so I wish to help others in some way and see other people succeed in their studies."
Senior Lecturer, Massey Business School
"I give to the Foundation because I know that our students benefit from whatever I can contribute - the students are our core stakeholder."
