Jim Bacon Foundation

The Jim Bacon Foundation provides support and financial assistance to cancer patients and the organisations that support them during treatment.

The Foundation works with service providers, hospital auxiliaries, community groups and health professionals to ensure the needs of individuals are met and services arent duplicated.

The Foundation also provides an annual scholarship program for up to three University of Tasmania students studying: the care and treatment of cancer; visual arts; or political science. More information is available on the University of Tasmania website.

Jim Bacon spent 25 years working in the union movement representing others and in 1996 became a Member of Parliament. In 1998 he was proudly elected Premier of Tasmania, a position he held until his resignation in March of 2004. The Jim Bacon Foundation was formed after Jim was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer and his untimely death in June 2004.
