2016 - 2017 Distributions List

ECT donates up to 50% of its post-tax income to local projects. This means the more income the Trust generates, the more money there is available to distribute to the wider East Coast region. 

In the 2016 financial year we have over $6.15 million available for distribution to initiatives that will have a significant impact on our community.
