Giving has always been a way of life for Stuart and Genevieve Fraser. They are as proactive as they are passionate about following the example of generosity set by their families, in particular Stuart’s father Huan, who established the Queensland-based Private Ancillary Fund (PAF) called the Fraser Foundation, which they now manage.
Every year the Fraser Foundation makes around three grants to each of the five organisations it supports, mostly through multi-year commitments. The Frasers trace their goals as young philanthropists – both are 39 years old – to their upbringing on remote outback properties where their parents instilled in them the importance of never turning a blind eye to people in need.
The dynamic duo tells F&P about their philanthropic interests, how they see the future of their family PAF and philanthropy in Australia.
