The John Wallis Foundation continues the work of the Missionary Sisters of Service who are an Australian congregation established in 1944. The Foundation supports people and communities experiencing hardship and disadvantage.
We are inspired by a world which demonstrates compassion, justice and love in equal measure to all.
We are a national organisation based in Melbourne, with volunteer Foundation branches in Hobart, Whyalla, Melbourne and Toowoomba. We undertake an annual Small Grants Program, a series of inspiring speakers events, and other activities to strengthen relationships and build community.
The Foundation is named in honour of Father John Wallis, founder of the Missionary Sisters of Service.
