Last month Hugh announced the Jackman Furness Foundation for the Performing Arts (JFFPA) to support art education in Western Australia. Hugh and Deb have created the foundation along with actor Jack Thompson with the aim of raising $10 million in private finance over the next four years.
On May 17th 2014, the foundation was officially launched at the WA Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) where Hugh himself trained and Hugh announced that they were already off to a good start: Andrew “Twiggy” Forrest and his wife Nicola, who were the first Australians to pledge the majority of their wealth to philanthropy, have donated $1 million to the foundation. A donation which Hugh and Deb are matching, dollar for dollar.
Hugh graduated from the WAAPA in 1994 and was offered a role in Correlli, the show where he would meet Deb, on the very evening he graduated.
I can tell you with absolute certainty, there is no way my career would be what it is or that I would be standing in this capacity on this stage if it wasn’t for this institution of WAAPA.
It is unique, there is nowhere like it in the world and everyone in our business knows about WAAPA and I want it to be treasured here, in this state, as much as it is around the world.
And of course Hugh would never miss an opportunity to sing so he was joined on stage by some of WAAPA’s musical theatre students to perform I Still Call Australia Home from The Boy From Oz, the Peter Allen story.
Hugh returned to WAAPA, which he graduated from in 1994, to officially launch the Jackman Furness Foundation.
