It was important to Ken and Pearl Moffat and their three surviving children to find a tangible way to honour Graeme's memory and keep his spirit of kindness and generosity alive. And so, The Graeme Moffat Memorial Fund was established.Primary beneficiaries of the Fund include charities which support causes that have a connection to Graeme's life. Such causes include the advancement of education, public health, economic development and poverty relief in Africa. The Fund also supports a range of mental health initiatives.
