The Fund was established in 1972 to assist disadvantaged Far North Queensland children and youth in their education, sporting and cultural activities.
The Fund, since its inauguration, has assisted thousands of our local youth achieve higher education, represent their region and state in sport and advance their cultural ambitions, where their financial situation would not have allowed them to do so.
Testimonial Funds, like Herb’s, along with Memorial Funds, are established by individuals and families. The fund monies are invested and the earnings are given to our worthy youth. Personal and Family Funds are perpetual.
The far northern community will be reminded annually of the generosity of all the donors’ funds.
At Herb’s request, The Herb Layt and Family Fund’s earnings will be used to assist local youth with educational scholarships. We thank Herb and his Family for their generosity.
If anyone would like to discuss the possibility of establishing his or her own fund, please contact our FNQYAF office
(07 4051 6590) and a member of the management committee will be happy to have a confidential discussion.
