The Walter Mangold Trust Fund is a Charitable Fund which originates from
arrangements made under the Wills of the late Anne Marie and Erwin Herzenberg.
The current Trustee is The CASS Foundation Limited.
The Fund commemorates the beliefs and achievements of Walter Mangold, the father of Anne Marie Herzenberg. Walter Mangold
devoted a good proportion of his life and energies to the teaching of languages and came to the conclusion that better understanding between peoples of the world and consequently lessening of
conflict, could be achieved by improving linguistic communication between them. The objects of the Fund, though relating to a number of specific issues and outcomes, reflect those underlying
principles and beliefs.
Anne Marie and Erwin Herzenberg set aside the substantial part of their assets to establish the Fund. The foresight and
benefaction of the Herzenberg family will enable the fund to make a worthwhile contribution to the study of languages in Australia and more widely, contribute to the development of international
understanding between peoples by virtue of the study and dissemination of their languages.
