From what started with $100,000.00 put in by Macrossan & Amiet the funds now held
are over $850,000.00!
Whilst the Partners of Macrossan & Amiet may have paid in the money to start things
going, it is our clients and the people of Mackay who have really embraced the Foundation and pushed it forward.
We cannot stress strongly enough our thanks to those clients and the people of Mackay who have contributed. Importantly, none of these people seek public acknowledgement of their contributions (so that is why their names are never mentioned by us) but to those people we truly thank them.
To see the fund grow from $100,000.00 to over $850,000.00 in just 15 years has exceeded all our original expectations. It is a truly remarkable achievement.
What does it mean for charities in Mackay and the Whitsundays? It means that this year we had available for distribution to charities nearly $40,000.00. Our hope is that the distributions made by the Foundation will assist charities in Mackay and the Whitsunday areas to enhance the valuable work that they do.
