The Lady Mayoress met with staff and volunteers from Nundah's Cystic Fibrosis Bookshop. She witnessed first hand the wonderful work they do.

For more than 50 years, the Trust’s fundraising efforts have improved the wellbeing of the most marginalised, vulnerable members of the Brisbane community.

Established in the 1960s, the Trust continues the good work of the Lord Mayor whose mission is to improve the liveability of all Brisbane's residents.

The Trust’s work supports charities that assist people suffering from disability, homelessness, mental illness, drug or alcohol addiction, trauma, abuse or neglect.

Importantly Every dollar donated to the Trust is re-given.

Corporate partners, community groups and individual benefactors are confident donating to the Trust because of its ability to identify charities in genuine need of support. 

Many corporates choose the Trust because a single donation is distributed to many needy charities, taking away the hours of work needed to identify suitable philanthropic opportunities

Every dollar you donate to the Trust is re-given. One single donation can assist many worthy causes. The Trust's strict due diligence process does all the hard work for you and enables your donation to really make a difference.

The Trust seeks out DGR status charities that provide prevention strategies and support services for people and families who live with disability, are homeless, suffering mental illness or who offer services for drug or alcohol addiction, trauma, abuse or neglect.

The Lord Mayor's Charitable Trust wishes to thank those who generously provide their support to assist us with our work.

Join the Lord Mayor and the Lady Mayoress at the 2015 Annual Lord Mayor's Charitable Trust Gala Ball. For information on this and other events click the icon above.
