About Colonial Foundation
In 1996, The Colonial Mutual Life Assurance Society Limited, after 123 years as a mutual life insurance society, demutualised and, in 1997, was listed on the stock exchange as Colonial Limited. The Colonial Foundation Trust was created as part of the demutualisation, in order to reflect in some way Colonial Limited's origin as a mutual society formed to provide a service to its members and the communities it served. Colonial Foundation Limited was formed to act as trustee of the Trust.
Following the merger of Colonial Limited with the Commonwealth Bank of Australia in June 2000, Colonial Foundation Limited became fully independent, with the responsibility of carrying out the broadly defined charitable objectives of Colonial Foundation Trust.
