The Ross Trust is a perpetual charitable trust with a vision to create positive social and environmental change so Victorians can thrive. As a compassionate and responsive philanthropic leader, we want to enable young people in Victoria by giving them equitable access to education, so they can complete their secondary schooling regardless of their circumstances. We work with partners to ensure Victoria’s biodiversity is conserved, protected and valued by all as part of a healthy and resilient environment.
From time to time, the Ross Trust will fund to other areas of need including responding to Victorians in crisis and working collaboratively to build the capacity of the philanthropic and social sector.
