The Jan Webster and Sue Peterson Sub-Fund is established by Sue Peterson and her late partner, Jan Webster.
Social justice was always a motivator for Jan and Sue throughout their long and loving relationship. Their shared experiences only made them more passionate about giving back and putting in the hard yards for equality
Our Sub-Fund Grants Program is now open, from Monday 19 July until Monday 30 August 2021. In 2021 the Jan Webster and Sue Peterson Sub-Fund will take applications for grants of up to $3,500.
The Jan Webster and Sue Peterson Sub-Fund will support a number of issues that have been close to Jan and Sue’s hearts:
Projects and initiatives that
• support the empowerment of women exiting prison,
• enhance educational and leadership opportunities for Aboriginal women, or
• provide pathways out of homelessness for women.
We welcome donations to the Sub-Fund. All contributions help build the financial pool for making grants and are fully tax-deductible.
