It is with sadnees we share the news that Anne Kantor AO passed away on Thursday 15th September 2022.
Anne and the Kantor family have been strong and vital supporters of the Australia Institute since it began more than 25 years ago and we send our deepest condolences to Anne’s family and loved ones. In lieu of flowers, Anne’s family has asked that people make a donation to support the Anne Kantor Fellowship program at the Australia Institute.
Anne Kantor’s life was a study of distinguished service to the community. Effective philanthropy and working to build a better future was in Anne’s DNA.
This was demonstrated by a long history of giving to the community, both through her work as an advocate and social worker, as well as her philanthropic support for a range of environmental, Indigenous, social justice, arts and educational organisations.
The Australia Institute’s work continues to build on Anne’s legacy and the Anne Kantor Fellowship program will ensure her legacy endures long into the future.
