Scanlon Foundation

Border Trust extends a special thanks to the Scanlon Foundation for providing more than $300,000 in grants to the Border region over multiple years, with a focus on supporting a welcoming and cohesive transition of migrants into our community.

The Scanlon Foundation aspires to see Australia advance as a welcoming, prosperous and cohesive nation particularly related to the transition of migrants into Australian society. The Foundation supports ongoing longitudinal research into the indicators of social cohesion and the results of this research inform the Foundations activities. The Foundation makes grants to improve social cohesion in areas of greatest need within Australia.
