2018/2019 – Thank you! Join our Village for 2019/2020 and choose your cup of kindness
A huge thank you to all who donated to Karinya House during June 2019 and all who worked so hard to generate support for Karinya House. Donation and Fundraising Revenue for the month of June was $117,000. This is our biggest donation month and includes our wonderful recurring donors, as well as the end of financial year appeal donations. Each year this month is so critical to us. Each year the month of June is so critical to us.
For the full year 2018/2019, donor, community, corporate and philanthropic funding and fundraising revenues are around $645,000, representing 38% of our total annual revenue. We are cheering and clapping for you all – everyone who contributed in any way!
The expected Operating Loss for the year ended 30 June 2019 is around $72,000. It costs around $155,000 per month to operate Karinya House. We need to raise 45% of this each month from our community. Our work is people intensive and we have gifted people doing amazing work. We also have a fabulous team of generous and talented volunteers supporting this work and our fundraising endeavours.
Whilst an annual operating loss of this nature is unsustainable in the long term, we remain confident that we can rely on your support – the support of our Karinya Friends, our Partners, our Village – to continue to support us into 2019/2020. The Committee has put faith in our community of support to ensure we can provide the same services levels in 2019/2020. Sadly, the demand for our specific support services in the Canberra Region is not declining. The Committee and all at Karinya are keen to retain our current service levels.
We are looking for new Friends and new Corporate Partners to donate their cup of kindness each month to Karinya House.
