Jean McCaughey Social Justice Sub Fund

The Jean McCaughey Social Justice Sub-Fund was established by the Trustees of the Victorian Women’s Benevolent Trust to show appreciation and recognise the significant contribution of Dr Jean McCaughey AO to the Victorian community.

Jean was a champion of social justice values and tireless community advocate, researcher and author. In her time as the wife of Victoria’s Governor she was known for her egalitarian style, opening up Government House to the public, and accepting patronage of more than 100 charities, chosen because of the value of their work.

The Jean McCaughey Social Justice Sub-Fund supports research projects that relate to women in the areas of:

  • Homelessness,
  • Poverty and family well-being,
  • Strengthening local communities.

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