Brian & Elizabeth Wood Fund
Brian and Elizabeth Wood have lived in Geelong for over 40 years. Brian grew up near Warrnambool and boarded at Geelong College, following which he embarked on a career in agribusiness taking him to various centres throughout Western Victoria and Melbourne.
Elizabeth grew up in Melbourne and Seymour and after qualifying as a secondary school teacher served in Terang, Hamilton and other centres, and has worked as a volunteer for “Uniting” for over 20 years.
Both Brian and Elizabeth grew up in caring families with a strong social conscience. They have benefited from community support themselves and are keen to assist where there is a need. They think that through the Geelong Community Foundation they can make a small contribution toward making a difference, and they are particularly attracted to the “Capital Fund” concept whereby their contribution is able to provide funds for worthwhile causes on an ongoing basis.
