KWT Progress 

June 2021 to December 2022

The KWT Community Fund progress report is a measure of our commitment and passion to ensure that we are working toward changing the language of philanthropy to make access to grants open to all First Nations across Victoria in a way that is culturally safe and culturally appropriate from our applications to our granting.

VALE John Bourke 

The Committee and Management of KWT Community Fund wishes to convey our deep condolences to family and friends of John Bourke. John was part of Toward A Just Society, who was instrumental and a strong ally in the formation and establishment of Koondee Woonga-gat Toor-rong, Victoria's First Nations Led Community fund. The Work that KWT does today is honours the legacy and vision shared by John and the members of Toward A Just Society to give back to First Nations communities across Victoria. We are sadden to hear of John Bourke's passing, may he rest peacefully in the dreaming.
