The Trust

St Mary's Music Foundation was established in 2007 to support and promote musical excellence at St Mary's Kangaroo Point.  The trust is governed by three trustees.

The Trust is listed on the Australian Government's Register of Cultural Organisations which is maintained under the provisions of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997.

A Gift Fund has been established by the Trust.  Donations of $2 or more to the Gift Fund enjoy Deductible Gift status under the Act.  To be tax deductible, donations must be given unconditionally.

A General Fund (Music at St Mary's account) has been established to receive contributions not enjoying tax deductible status - such as conditional gifts, sponsorships, proceeds of events.
