Every dollar donated to the Trust is re-given to those in need
Funds are distributed to a wide variety of charities working hard to provide vital community services and to address pressing social needs within Brisbane.
The Trust supports charities through two general grant rounds per year, each capped at $10,000; an Easter Appeal, involving Easter egg donations; and a Christmas Appeal, involving donations of toys, food vouchers and small cash grants up to $2,000.
Augmenting the Trust’s annual giving program is a commitment to supporting priority causes through a medium-term, major grants process. This approach enables the Trust to make a significant donation to a single recipient whose work is focused on addressing a particular and pressing social need.
In the next four years, the Trust’s goal is to award a major grant to a suitably worthy charity working to support the Brisbane community in the area of abuse and neglect.
