Who Are We?
The Trust has a Board of volunteers who contribute their time to
communicate with supporters, raise funds and determine which projects
to support. The Board meets every month to carry out these tasks. While
the Board started as a small group of Anna's friends and family, it has
now expanded to include new members who bring with them a range of
skills and talents.
important role which the Board has is to make recommendation to the
Melbourne Community Foundation about what grants it should be from the
Anna Wearne Fund.
are also a range of committees which are made up of valued Trust
supporters who help organise things such as our Fundraising events.
These committee members play an important role in the Trust without
needing to formally join the Board.
year the Trust publishes its Newsletter, Cork Your Hole. Many people
wonder about the title Cork Your Hole, which was Anna's way of telling
people to sit down and listen to her when she had something important
to tell them. It has stories about the projects we are supporting and
our latest news. Click here to join
the mailing list for our newsletter.
The board members of the Anna Wearne Trust would like to welcome their
new patron Ms Beth Charles who will join our patron Ron Merkel. Beth
has been a consistent, loyal and generous supporter of the trust since
our beginning and we look forward to working closely with her.
