The Foundation was inspired by Spencer Gibson and grew from his generous bequest.
How do we act on his sense of purpose?
About the Foundation
The Spencer Gibson Foundation is a private ancillary fund established by the Gibson family in 2015. Eligible Australian charities can apply for funding via an expression of interest process.
In line with Spencer Gibson’s aims, The Foundation focuses on Australian charities and projects that:
- advance research and care for people living with mental health problems or physical conditions such as cancer, heart disease or epilepsy.
- ease people’s access to community life and spur their growth through education, the arts and creative expression.
- support people beyond crisis accommodation and into stable long-term housing.
Equity Trustees supports the founders in reviewing applications and evaluating charitable partnerships. The Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission (ACNC) regulates and monitors our work.
