The extraordinary contribution of our Patrons is acknowledged by our President, His Majesty The King, who takes a keen interest in those who give so generously to His Australian Trust.
The long-term support of our Patrons means The Trust can make a sustainable difference to the futures of many Australians.
We value the bespoke nature of our relationship with our most significant supporters. We provide detailed reporting on the impact of their giving every year. Of the many benefits, the most compelling is the opportunity to see our work in action.
"I’m honoured to be the founding patron of the Prince's Trust Australia through which His Royal Highness has championed many worthy causes."

Anthony Pratt is the Executive Chairman of Visy and Pratt Industries USA, the world's largest private recycled paper manufacturer providing 18,000 well-paying manufacturing jobs (and with multiplier, 100,000 family’s jobs). Mr Pratt has donated over $300 million to a range of charities and has pledged to donate
$1 billion more in his lifetime.
"We believe in preservation – of our environment, our wildlife, and more specifically, the culture of our First Nations Peoples. We reject constraint and we let our collective heart match our heads, ready always to challenge, fight and speak up."
David and Sallie Prior founded the Prior Family Foundation in 2015 with an underlying principle that the earth needs our help, starting right here on the lands and in the waters we owe so much to. David and Sallie recognise that so many of the challenges that we collectively face are masked behind agendas, half-truths or posturing. They are both driven by finding and backing solutions that get to the heart of issues to enable the preservation of our environment, protect our most vulnerable animals and honour our cultures. The Prior Family Foundation also passionately supports Culture is Life, Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef, Greening Australia’s Reef Aid and Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors.
