Trusts and foundations
Through the generous benevolence of philanthropic trusts and corporate foundation grants, private ancillary funds and government submissions, the Leukaemia Foundation can continue our valuable work in the delivery of research, care and support.
We’re proud to acknowledge the support of the following trusts and foundations:
Cory Charitable Foundation
The Cory Family Group is a successful group of companies that has been based in South East Queensland since 1968.
As a successful business, Mr Cory believes, ‘We have an obligation to offer financial support to those in need so we are committed to providing this to our local community. Providing for the community gives a sense of satisfaction that is entirely different from business success. We are fortunate to have achieved success in our chosen field of expertise, so we started to look at the bigger picture, what needs to be done, what we can do to help.’
The Cory Charitable Foundation supports organisations that care for our community. The Foundation contributes to the growth and well-being of a number of Queensland-based charities and institutes. Notable fields to benefit from The Cory Charitable Foundation include:
- medical research
- social welfare
- Emergency relief organisations
The John Villiers Trust
The John Villiers Trust is an independent philanthropic Trust established by the late John Villiers.
The Trust gives grants to Queensland charities, and particularly supports communities to participate in projects which will enrich lives and strengthen social spirit.
John Villiers spent his early life at sea. A quiet, unassuming man, in later life he was a jackaroo and pastoralist who spent much of his life in Central, Northern and Outback Queensland. He gave to many charities and worthy causes in his lifetime, and today the Trustees continue his tradition to benefit future generations of Queenslanders.
Sylvia and Charles Viertel Charitable Foundation
The Sylvia and Charles Viertel Charitable Foundation is one of Australia’s largest charitable foundations making its first disbursements in 1993.
Projects supported by the Foundation have made an important contribution to Australian life by supporting research into cancer and eye disease, medical science generally, and social welfare projects in urban and regional Australia.
The Sylvia and Charles Viertel Charitable Foundation has supported the Leukaemia Foundation of Queensland since 1994. This generous support has been directed towards the following programs:
