Beswick Family Fund
Beswick Family Fund provides invaluable support to MacKillop Family Services’ Psychology Clinic and Koorie Youth Traineeship Program.

RAVC Community Foundation
MacKillop was recently awarded a generous grant from the RACV Community Foundation for MacKillop's Getting Out There program, a driver safety awareness program for young people in out-of-home care and newly arrived asylum seekers. Driver awareness and safety programs are paramount in developing the skills of people in MacKillop's care to ensure their safety on the roads and the safety of other road users.

State Trustees
MacKillop's Chick Chat Program is an eight-week educational program promoting empowerment and resilience amongst teenage girls with an intellectual disability in the inner north and western region of Melbourne. The generous support of State Trustees allows the Chick Chat Program to provide a forum for discussing issues relating to gender, health, emotional wellbeing and personal safety.
