“This foundation has been established by our family who spent twenty years living and working on a cattle property in rural Queensland.

It is the family’s intention that rural, remote and regional Queenslanders are afforded opportunities equal to their metropolitan counterparts.

We hope that our foundation will act as a catalyst for others to engage in their own philanthropic pursuits.”
