Benevolent Fund

The Benevolent Fund was established to render advice, and at times financial assistance, in cases of hardship to any member, former member, or family or dependants of a deceased member of the Australian Dental Association Victorian Branch (ADAVB).

The Fund is an essential aspect of the ADAVB’s care of its members. It also funds the member assistance program.

The Fund is built up by voluntary donations and administered by a Board of Management consisting of five senior colleagues who deal confidentially with information from anyone who may become aware of deserving circumstances.

The current Benevolent Fund board of management consists of:

  • Dr John Matthews AM (Chair)
  • Dr Ann Goodrich
  • Dr Greg Tilley.

The ADAVB Immediate Past President and a Councillor appointed by the Branch Council also serve on the board as ex-officio members.

If you know of a situation where the Benevolent Fund Board might be able to provide assistance, please contact us

The Benevolent Fund relies on donations to operate. Please consider donating to the Fund to help support your colleagues.
