Equity Trustees

Charitable trusts managed by Equity Trustees supported MacKillop Family Services by awarding two grants to deliver innovative programs.

MacKillop was very grateful to be the recipient of a $100,000 signature grant from the R.M. Ansett Trust, in support of its Connection to Country project. Connection to Country aims to ensure young Aboriginal people in MacKillop’s residential care have opportunities to form positive connections to their traditional community and identify with family, community and culture.

MacKillop is also a recipient of a Principal Children and Youth Grant, which is funded by the David Taylor Galt Charitable Trust, the EHM Ratcliff Trust and the William Henry Pawsey Charitable Trust.  This grant supports MacKillop to run a supported playgroup, which aims to increase the number of vulnerable families accessing key early year’s services, and increase parenting skills and support in the Melton area.
