 Description:  Philanthropist Des Donnachie graduated in 1990 from the Brisbane College of Advanced Education (BCAE), Kedron Park which later became part of QUT. It is from his memories of his impoverished early life that he made the decision to pass on the fruits of his studies to dedicated students studying information technology at QUT and who, like he was, are experiencing financial difficulties. His hope was to be able to share his good fortune and give future students 'the break' they, like him, need to progress in their chosen career.
