Welcome to the John T Reid Charitable Trusts
The John T Reid Charitable Trusts are a national funding organisation with a wide ranging commitment to philanthropy around Australia. The Trustees are proud of a track record of generous giving for over fifty years, being responsive to community need and supportive to key issues.
We believe that good philanthropy results from developing relationships with people. Trustees play an important role in meeting with applicants to determine the full extent of the project for funding. This hands-on approach enables practical, creative and responsive giving. We are concerned to reduce the administrative burden associated with funding applications, streamlining the approach to funding. The John T Reid Charitable Trusts enable good people to continue good works in the community to progress a just and equitable society.
The John T Reid Charitable Trusts fund innovation and support organisations to expand their current activities. We fund start-up and pilot projects that are strategic and creative, capacity building, capital works and research and development with a vision for improving the lives of all Australians. Some recently funded projects are highlighted below.
