The Buderim Foundation Thompson Fund.
In April 2021, philanthropists Roy and Nola Thompson entrusted over $5 million to the Buderim Foundation. An additional grants program entitled the Buderim Foundation Thompson Fund was established.
Chair of the Foundation, Dr Russell Stitz said the Foundation would operate the Buderim Foundation Thompson Fund in the same way as the Foundation’s other investments and the generous donation will be preserved in perpetuity with only the revenue distributed each year in grants.
Grants from the Buderim Foundation Thompson Fund are designed specifically to look after those in financial need and are open to organisations providing support throughout the Sunshine Coast, including the Sunshine Coast and Noosa council areas.
The Thompson Fund grant program applications for 2021 closed on 21 May, 2021.
