Christine Friday and Kathleen Pooley Sub Fund

The Trustees of the Victorian Women’s Benevolent Trust (VWBT) were particularly proud to establish the Chris Friday Sub Fund in December 2016 because it leads the way in philanthropic support for Aboriginal women and girls.

The Sub Fund is thanks to the vision and generosity of Chris Friday, a woman committed to supporting her community through her volunteering efforts and philanthropy.

In May 2019, Chris made a request to the Trustees of the Victorian Women’s Benevolent Trust to change the name of her Sub Fund to the Christine Friday & Kathleen Pooley Sub Fund, as a way of honouring and acknowledging her late biological mother Kathleen (1906 – 1957).

The Sub Fund will seek applications from:

  • Aboriginal community organisations for projects addressing the education, health needs and housing of Aboriginal women and girls in Victoria.

We welcome donations to this Sub Fund. All contributions help build the financial pool for making grants and are fully tax-deductible.
