The scholarship in honour of Terry for children who speak up to prevent bullying that myself, my sister Debbi, and our partners Louise and Rod sponsored, will be awarded to two worthy recipients (a girl and a boy) of the Avoca Primary School. The family will proudly sponsor this award annually.

Empowering children to live in a safer environment is the basis of our foundation and our vision is to reach out to more isolated rural schools with more scholarships being sponsored by the Terry Floyd Foundation. From recent articles we believe that there is a great need in our communities to help our children and it is the responsibility of all of us. Please help support our foundation and help kids.


Thank you to every one who supported us in purchasing the Terry Floyd Foundation Polos and Hoodies.

The first order of merchandise that we organised sold out in the first 24 hours. So we are hopeful of having our orders ready shortly to be sent out to you.

If you missed out this time, don’t worry, we’ll be organising another Merchandise Run once we get this one finalised.

A huge thank you to everyone from all of the team @ The Terry Floyd Foundation.


Welcome to The Terry Floyd Foundation.

The Terry Floyd Foundation was set up in memory of Terry Floyd, aged 12, who was abducted and murdered while waiting for a lift home from Avoca to Maryborough, Victoria, on 28 June 1975.

The Foundation was established in March 2019 by Daryl Floyd, Terry’s younger brother, in response to the overwhelming support for the search for Terry. This inspired Daryl, and a small group of volunteers, to set up the foundation focusing on turning Terry’s legacy into a positive by making children’s lives better.

The belief and vision of The Terry Floyd Foundation is to help support children live brighter futures.

The main aims of the foundation are:

  • to help with awareness of personal safety through encouraging children to speak out against bullying
  • to support disadvantaged children to help them reach their full potential.
