It is with great pleasure that I share with you the first Tim Fairfax Family Foundation Annual Report. In compiling this report, we were eager to take the opportunity to highlight the work of the Foundation and the organisations we have supported in the past year.

The TFFF was established as a private family foundation in June 2008. After our family had lived and worked in rural Queensland for more than twenty years we felt it important to support the people and communities of rural, remote and regional Queensland. We are particularly passionate about helping build local capacity and providing access to opportunities and experiences that are readily available in metropolitan areas, yet often missing in rural, regional and remote communities.   We have extended our geographic reach to communities in the Northern Territory.

I hope that you enjoy reading the TFFF 2015 Annual Report and are similarly encouraged and inspired by the stories contained within.
