The W. D. Booth Estate Foundation
- In March 2018 The W. D. Booth Estate Foundation recently contributed $9000 to Community Care TASMANIA to support our upgrade of office IT equipment. This will enable us to deliver more client services more efficiently.
- Previously The W.D. Booth Estate Foundation has donated $8,000 to help develop this website and the Dial an Angel Service. We are very grateful for all their support.
Since 2000 the money generated from the late Winifred Booth's estate has provided $4 million to Tasmanian charities and community programs with a focus on health, youth and the arts. To find out more contact the W. D. Booth Foundation.
