Grant Program Development Manager, Equity Trustees
Grant Hooper has been working in the not-for-profit and philanthropic sectors for more than fifteen years. In that time he has worked for the country's peak body in philanthropy, an education and youth-focused not-for-profit organisation and two trustee companies, as well as a professional Australian rules football team.
Equity Trustees, a licensed trustee company, manages around 600 philanthropic trusts collectively distributing approximately $70 million per annum. In his current role as Senior Manager, Grants at Equity Trustees Grant oversees a team of philanthropic professionals and together they manage the majority of those trusts. The team’s role involves overseeing the end-to-end operations of the trusts, developing and implementing granting strategies and providing research and advice to Trustees and donors to inform their grantmaking.
Grant is married with two primary school-aged children. Much of his ‘spare time’ is spent ferrying them around but occasionally he finds time to share via social media his thrills and frustrations of following his favourite sporting codes and teams.
