$2.5m gift for ANU development policy centre

In one of the most significant gifts ever given to The Australian National University, the Harold Mitchell Foundation announced on 22 November $2.5 million in funding for the Development Policy Centre in the Crawford School of Public Policy.

Established in 2010, the Centre is Australia’s first independent think tank to promote research and discussion on key issues such as aid effectiveness, economic development in the Pacific and PNG, and other development policies.

ANU Vice-Chancellor Professor Ian Young said the generous gift from the Harold Mitchell Foundation would allow the Centre to continue its important work, and announced that the University would match the gift, bringing the total value of support the Centre is receiving to $5 million.
