The Role of the Copland Trustees
The Copland Trustees manage a trust fund, (a fund raised from the sale of Alex Copland’s assets), as a common fund in perpetuity. Their task is to apply the income derived as follows:
- To provide one scholarship each year to an Australian resident for the purposes of attending one of the Attingham Trust programs in the United Kingdom.
- To fund in any one year projects that fall under the umbrella of Alex Copland’s interests; related to one or more house museums, science museums, art galleries, fine and decorative art galleries and libraries or any other like museums, institutions, societies, organisations provided the public has access. For more detailed information click on “The Copland Foundation Grants”.
- To fund such other incidental charitable purposes as the trustees in their absolute discretion determine.
