Heartfelt thanks to the Andrew Jack Charitable Trust

Benefactor Andrew Jack

We are delighted to let you know about our first major philanthropic bequest, from the Warrnambool-Portland-based Andrew Jack Charitable Trust. The fund's trustees made the significant donation after reading about us in the Sunday Age recently. As a charity founded in Warrnambool (Dr Noel Bayley's home town) and one with a strong track record and no administrative overheads, the trustees were certain Mr Jack would have approved.
Andrew Jack was a bachelor farmer and champion cattle breeder. He was a community-minded man,  heavily involved in Portland Rotary Club and a major supporter of the Rotary Foundation. He was interested in improving health care in developing countries. Andrew Jack sadly passed away in 2011, aged 74, and left his property and his sizeable estate to charity.
East Timor Hearts Fund is honoured to receive this significant contribution, which will allow us to extend the scope of our work. We thank the family of Andrew Jack, and the trustees of his fund, Stephen Blaker, Patrick Howman and Kym Stock. We undertake to continue to be a cause of which Andrew Jack would be proud.
