Mission Statement

The Tim Fairfax Family Foundation (TFFF) supports Australian charitable organisations and initiatives aimed at addressing the particular needs of communities in rural, remote and regional areas within Queensland and the Northern Territory.

The Tim Fairfax Family Foundation (TFFF) is a private family foundation established in June 2008. The Trustees of the Tim Fairfax Family Foundation are Tim Fairfax AC, Gina Fairfax and Jim Peterson.  Advisory support is provided by Sarah O'Brien, Lucy Coulson, Fiona Poschelk and Prue Pateras.

The TFFF supports initiatives which fall under the following three themes and which benefit communities within rural, remote and regional areas of Queensland and the Northern Territory.


Supporting initiatives which benefit communities by extending their exposure to, and experiences with, a variety of artistic activities.


Supporting initiatives which promote student engagement by providing strong, well supported learning environments through improved resources including the training and professional development of existing educators within these communities.


Supporting initiatives which target specific imbalances within communities, giving preference to those aimed at redressing the effects of isolation.
