The Karinya Committee is pleased to launch the Karinya House Endowment Fund.

Whilst recognising the importance of donor, corporate and community support during each financial year, to support the delivery of services to women, the Committee is also focused on financial sustainability in the long term.

Donor, corporate and community support represents around 30% of annual operating revenues and remains a key component of Karinya’s funding platform.  The support of our community, as well as Government, speaks to the women we walk alongside, reinforcing the value of village and community, and recognising every woman as a valued part of our community in the Canberra Region.

We also recognise there are a number in our community who wish to give more substantively, in addition to their annual support for Karinya, by way of larger living gifts or through gifting to Karinya House in their wills.

As part of the 2021-2025 Karinya House Strategic Management Plan, the Committee identified that our ability to support women is underpinned by our ongoing financial sustainability.
One of the strategies identified in the Strategic Plan to support future financial certainty is the establishment of a Committee-Designated Karinya House Endowment Fund (KHEF). The KHEF is partnered with a Gifts In Wills (GIW) program, which seeks to invite our Friends to consider a lasting gift to Karinya House.

We invite key stakeholders to review the Karinya House Endowment Fund. The document, during this ‘soft launch’ period is open to comment, and whilst key terms of reference are final, we would welcome your feedback, for due consideration.
