We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of our friend and long-standing Trustee of the Foundation, Fred (David) Bass. Fred played a huge role at the Foundation, ensuring that we stayed true to our values and listening to communities that we work with. As Chair of the Grants Committee, he recognised the power of community support and ensuring innovative ideas were noticed. He was also a member of our Finance Committee, where his expertise and knowledge in the stewardship of funds was greatly appreciated.
Fred encouraged us all to maintain drive for change.
We are forever grateful to Fred for his dedication, passion and wealth of knowledge that he shared with us here at the Foundation. We will work hard to ensure Fred’s legacy continues, steering us in the correct direction of change. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
