Vincent Fairfax Family Foundation - Australians in their advancing years
The Vincent Fairfax Family Foundation (VFFF) was established in 1962 by the late Sir Vincent Fairfax. Born in 1909, Sir Vincent was a fourth generation Australian who served his country in the war and was a leading member of the business community. He held numerous directorships and official positions with financial firms and held special regard for organisations with interests in rural Australia stemming from his rural upbringing at Cambooya near Toowoomba in Queensland. Sir Vincent was known to have an extraordinary capacity for work and also gave his time to voluntary and charitable institutions. He firmly believed that wealth and influence brought with it a responsibility and an obligation to serve the community. Today the VFFF is governed by a Board of family and non-family Directors and annual distributions are made to projects that fall within its guidelines. The Trust is honoured to be a recipient of funding that allows for the perpetuation of the memory of Sir Vincent Fairfax.
