Susan Owens, Director

Susan Owens

Susan joined Border Trust Board of Directors in February 2024.

With her family owning property in Mount Beauty, Susan has spent over 40 years holidaying in Mount Beauty and Falls Creek. In 2015 Susan and her husband decided to move out of Sydney and finally settle in the region they love by making Albury their home.

Susan has broad strategic, operational, and project experience working across multiple industries designing and delivering strategic change to support innovation.

Being GAICD qualified, Susan is passionate about helping Not For Profits (NFPs) and their boards achieve great things for their communities. She believes Border Trust has an important role in the region, connecting donors to community initiatives, being a conduit for funding and providing governance support to local NFPs.

Susan also loves travelling as well as partaking in the great food wine and cultural activities our region offers.

A Community Foundation is an independent philanthropic organisation working in a specific geographic area which, over time, builds up a collection of endowed funds from many donors in the community. It provides services to the community and its donors, makes grants and undertakes community leadership and partnership activities to address a wide variety of needs in its service area.”
