Innovative projects aimed at alleviating poverty. The Bill Crews Charitable Trust encourages, supports, finances, resources and develops means of tackling local community needs at an international level.
The thing I like about Bill Crews is that he comes at issues from unorthodox perspectives. He is constantly trying to understand fellow human beings. Not to condemn them. He challenges us to hear the variety of humanity and to walk for a time in other people’s shoes. This is what helps build a better and kinder society.Michael Kirby
Bill Crews is an unpolished gem, an unpretentious Man of God who gives all religions a good name – in fact, a great name! Bill doesn’t just ‘talk the talk’ when it comes to charity and good works, he walks the journey too, with his sleeves rolled up and sweat on his brow. His tireless work and commitment to the disadvantaged is a stark lesson to everyone of us. He proves that ‘ the power of one’ can and does make a difference.Ray Martin

Over many years my Bill Crews Charitable Trust has run the MultiLit Literacy Tutorial program in Darwin. It gives lots of Aboriginal kids the literacy skills they need to succeed. At the end of each program we celebrate with a graduation, and what recently happened was extra special.It made heaven sing!
One young Aboriginal boy stepped up to read a note of thanks. He’d struggled through the program more than most. Nevertheless he slowly began to read. One word at a time. Expressing his gratitude.
To all of us in the audience – his classmates and the parents – Read More
