The Betty Ward Foundation was established by the late Evelyn Betty Ward in 2016. Betty was deeply committed to the South Australian community and her Foundation continues to support young people and their communities to break the cycle of intergenerational disadvantage.
Australian Executor Trustees Limited (AET, part of Equity Trustees) is the trustee of the Foundation.
Eligible charities can apply for funding via an expression of interest process aligned with the Foundation’s funding strategy.
