Enabling something more
The Jim Bettison and Helen James Foundation was established through the estates of the late Jim Bettison and Helen James. Their wish was to establish an award in recognition of an individual’s lifetime work of significant benefit to the community. The award may provide the recipient with time for further activity that may benefit and enrich the community.
The Foundation was established and is governed by The Jim Bettison and Helen James Foundation Advisory Committee comprising Simone Vinall, Geoff Purdie and Doreen Mellor (spokesperson).
The Adelaide Film Festival acts as the administering Partner for the Jim Bettison and Helen James Award in partnership with the Foundation.
Perpetual Ltd acts as Trustee for the Jim Bettison and Helen James Foundation.
Should you wish to make a donation towards the Award program, please contact either the Foundation or the Adelaide Film Festival.
