Qantas is consolidating its charitable and community activities in a single charitable foundation under a separate board of directors.
Qantas chairman Leigh Clifford announced yesterday that the new board, headed by Starlight Foundation chair Doug Jukes, would oversee a fund of more than $5 million, including $3.4 million raised from the sale of some artworks. He said it would co-exist alongside the airline's existing community programs and allow it to expand into new areas, including the environment, humanitarian relief and Australian contemporary art.
