Road transport philanthropist makes top 50

The Peter & Lyndy White Foundation, dedicated to helping those less fortunate, is listed in the top 50 private givers for 2015-16, according to financial consultancy, JBWere.

Peter White established the Foundation in 2005, and is known in the commercial road transport industry for founding trailer builder, White Transport Equipment, in 1968, purchasing Freighter Australia in 1983, and merging Freighter, Coonara Heaters and Maxi-CUBE into a publicly listed company in 1998.

The Peter & Lyndy White Foundation reportedly contributed $3.3 million during 2015-16. It increased the supply of low-income housing for the elderly and those fleeing domestic violence. Since its launch, the Foundation has distributed over $25 million in grants for charitable purposes in Victoria.
