Deep, positive change takes time. It takes strong partnerships. It takes real involvement. It needs to be owned and shared. The John Villiers Trust is here to support work and ideas that seed long-term meaningful change. We love country Queensland and we believe the future of its communities is in the hands of young people. It’s where great change starts. That’s why we’re out here — for good.
JVT is unlike most charitable organisations. Our unique intermediary approach focusses on connection, providing not just funding but vision, structure, and collaboration. We seek like-minded donors, funders and advisors whose ideas, causes and goals align with ours, to unite resources and invest for long-term transformative change. Through collaboration we’re able to foster change and build powerful relationships in multiple ways and in many locations right across Queensland. And the more we do it, the better it gets — for all of us.
