Native title and community trust

Providing Aboriginal communities a cost-effective and efficient way to invest.

The Perpetual Native Title and Community Trust is a pre-established charitable trust registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission, with Perpetual as trustee.

It is designed to provide Aboriginal communities with a cost-effective and efficient way to invest their money for immediate and future needs.

When communities set up their own account within the structure, Perpetual provides services to help manage, protect, grow and distribute their funds.

Who is it designed for?

An account within the trust is generally suited to communities with an existing Approved Recipient, such as a local Aboriginal corporation, who can:

  • engage with the community
  • deliver programs for charitable purposes
  • prepare budgets
  • distribute funds in line with what has been agreed by the community
