John Ilott Charitable Trust
This $3 million fund was established in 1960 by the late Sir John Ilott and substantially increased by his son and daughter, the late Jack Ilott and the late Mrs Suzanne McKellar. Trustee and Officer roles are now performed by members of the Rotary Club of Wellington, of which club both Sir John and Jack Ilott were Past-Presidents. 
The Trust disburses funds annually in grants (mainly in the $1,000 to $2,000 range) to help charitable, educational and community groups needing a little "seed money"; or projects associated with literacy; sex education; parenting; babies and pre-school children; children and young people; women; or advanced training for individuals already highly skilled in the arts, charitable, educational or community service activities. 
The Trust makes grants only once per year – in December.
