The John & Myriam Wylie Foundation
provides financial and non-financial support.
The John And Myriam Wylie Foundation aspires to provide financial support to organisations or situations where it will likely make a real difference. The primary focus of the Foundation is on Education but also extends to causes that are important to John and Myriam or to the external directors of the Foundation.
Why we exist
We believe that charities are a powerful force for good in our community and provide vital support to people in need. We’re in a postion to invest in community organisations, so we do.
We like being effective but quiet supporters. We’re not trying to draw attention to ourselves. Our motto is, “We aim to make an impact, not a statement.” We prefer to make investments that have clear goals and a multiplier benefit.
What we do
We primarily focus on education as we believe that this is the basis for all positive social changes in many sectors of society such as youth and social inclusion, the indigenous community, or general well-being. We also support specific interests such as the French-speaking community in Victoria
