Philanthropic Giving

Support from Trusts, Foundations, independent grant-making bodies and philanthropists makes a vital difference in enabling Quest for Life’s work. The support of our donors is what makes our work possible and enables us to reach more people in need of our services.

Grant support enables Quest to provide services targeted to general or specific areas, including to people affected by:

  • Bushfire and drought trauma
  • Domestic violence
  • Chronic health issues
  • Caring for others
  • Bereavement
  • Other life challenges.

We would like to thank our past and current trust and foundation supporters and philanthropists. With your support, Quest can work towards your specific objectives and long-term health outcomes.

A message from our Patron

“My good friend, Petrea King, refused to accept her terminal diagnosis of leukaemia several decades ago. Petrea recovered and then unashamedly devoted her life to helping others in traumatic life situations. My wife and I are proud to be long-term supporters of Quest for Life and we have witnessed first-hand the hope that Petrea and her amazing staff have given to so many people over the years.

With the demand for Quest’s services growing exponentially in our current world, this next chapter for the Quest for Life Foundation holds great promise and surely warrants our generous support.

My wife and I are proud to support Quest for Life. I hope you will join us.
