State Trustees Australia Foundation

The Foundation was established in 1994 as a public charitable trust administered by State Trustees.  Through the generosity of donations and bequests from donors, the Foundation has distributed more than $27 million to charities that make a difference in the community.

State Trustees Australia Foundation has a focus on helping those disadvantaged by ageing, disability and mental health.  This commitment extends to funding elder abuse prevention and response programs and raising awareness about elder abuse generally.  In 2018, the Foundation will be working with The Funding Network to help grassroots organisations working in the fields of positive ageing, elder abuse prevention and elder abuse response to host a live crowdfunding event in June 2018.


Eligible applicants may sumit an application for $25,000.  Please read our guidelines which detail our eligibility criteria and funding priorities.
