The Bryan Foundation has been a major supporter of Act for Kids since 2009, contributing funds towards therapy for hundreds of children who have experienced abuse and neglect.
The Foundation adopts a low public profile, but believes it is important to share its activities to encourage other Australian families to consider establishing their own philanthropic funds.
The Bryan Foundation was established in 2009 by Queensland-based businessman, Bob Bryan AM, to provide a means of giving back to the community and creating a perpetual family legacy.
Bob is an entrepreneur and philanthropist who has had a long and successful career in the mining, investments and property sectors.
Since its inception, the Foundation has donated in excess of AUD$15 million and as at 30 June 2017, has a corpus capital of approximately AUD$40 million.
The Foundation’s core focus centres on empowering young Queenslanders through education.
Its specific focus is geared towards organisations whose education and training programs creatively address the challenges faced by vulnerable young Queenslanders, with a particular focus on early childhood education.
As a Private Ancillary Fund (PAF), The Bryan Foundation can only support organisations that have Deductible Gift Status (DGR 1).
