In 2004, after a vibrant lifetime of generosity John and Janet Wicking left behind the J.O. & J.R. Wicking Trust. John had survived World War II returning home to marry Janet, establish a property in Euroa and successful career in business.
The Wicking Trust lives on as a tribute to their partnership and commitment to funding organisations addressing Alzheimer’s disease, programs that support ageing well and partnerships with Vision Australia and the O’Brien Foundation. As one of Australia’s most significant philanthropic trusts, it distributes around $4 million annually.
