Ansett Trust Logo

Sir Reginald Ansett expressed a wish in his Will that the income from his charitable trust be distributed to authorised charities and be used to “assist children to take their place in life”.

There are many factors which can influence a child’s ability to “take their place in life” such as education, employment, health, family and peer support, mentors and access to extra-curricular activities and programs.  The R.M. Ansett Trust was launched in November 2010 and in its first year, distributed nearly $1 million in grants and scholarships.
