The Board of Directors
The Board of Directors are responsible for the day-to-day management of the Foundation, including fundraising, investing, marketing, and communication, assessing and awarding the annual grants and awards. Directors are appointed for a three-year term and can serve a maximum of three terms (nine years).
Philippa Packer (Chairman), Doug Kerr, Paul Green, Vikki Baldwin, Dean McAullay, Dr Brien Hennessy and Cliff Lawrence.
As the RTYF continues to evolve and strives to achieve its mission, the Directors hope to raise the profile sufficiently so the whole yachting fraternity can recognise and realise the benefits of the philanthropic objective the original founders wanted. In 2019 The Ron Tough Yachting Foundation reached the milestone of having made in excess of $1,000,000 in grants to support the WA sailing community and has committed to the goal of making grants of at least $100,000 in 2020. The longer term goal is for the Foundation to be able to award annual grants totalling $150,000 per year by 2022 to deserving candidates. To do this, we need your assistance. For those sailors (of all ages) who have either benefitted from a grant or believe in what the Ron Tough Yachting Foundation is trying to accomplish, we would be very grateful for your support.
