FXAA Endowment Fund
The Fragile X Association of Australia Endowment Fund was established in early 2012 to enable funds to be invested to generate interest payments for the activities of the Association to ensure its long term survival and operation.
The overall objective of the Endowment Fund’s investment strategy is to provide a conservative and prudent framework within which the fund may grow its capital and earn a steady income to support the Association’s core activities of raising awareness of the syndrome and supporting those families living with Fragile X.
The Endowment Fund is maintained and accounted for separately from the Association’s other funds and is managed by an Advisory Committee. This Committee meets regularly and reports to the Association. The members of the Board are detailed below.
Gifts to the Fund over $2 are tax deductible. Where donors designate that their contribution is to the Fund, donations will be paid directly into the Fund’s bank account. Donations of other property will be recorded in the accounts of the Fund. All legacies or bequests from wills received will be paid into the Fund, unless the terms of the gift otherwise specify.

Alternatively, you have the power to help us help those living with Fragile X. After family and friends, please consider the Fragile X Association of Australia as a beneficiary under your will.
If you would like to include the Association in your will, we are able to provide you with appropriate wording which may assist you. Please contact the office for this information on 1300 394 6363.
The Association thanks all past and future contributors for their support and generosity.
