Welcome to The Jack Brockhoff Foundation

The Jack Brockhoff Foundation was established in 1979 by the late Sir Jack Brockhoff. Sir Jack Brockhoff was Chairman and Managing Director of Brockhoff Biscuits Pty Ltd, a business established by his grandfather in 1880.

Throughout his life, Sir Jack was keen to assist others in the community less fortunate than himself.

The Foundation exists to support the health and wellbeing of all Victorians.
