About the Foundation

The Macpherson Smith Rural Foundation Limited (MSRF) is a charity that pursues a vision of a thriving confident rural Victoria driven by inspiring leaders.

The Foundation was established by a grant from the Helen Macpherson Smith Trust, a well known independent philanthropic trust established by the late Helen Macpherson Schutt (nee Smith). For more than fifty years the Trust has provided grants to a wide variety of charitable institutions and a diverse range of projects that seek to benefit and improve the lives of the people of Victoria.

Thanks to the generous support of the Helen Macpherson Smith Trust, MSRF is ready to pursue its goals.
