UKARIA honours our First Nations by fostering a shared sense of respect for this land, and we acknowledge and pay our respects to the Peramangk, traditional custodians of the land on which the Cultural Centre stands.


The UKARIA Foundation was established in July 2018. Its aim is to support UKARIA's cultural program in perpetuity. Musicians from across Australia and around the world have established UKARIA as a South Australian cultural icon. Join us in creating its future by making a donation to the UKARIA Foundation.

Giving to the Endowment Fund

Your gift will build the corpus and the investment income will support the cultural program in perpetuity. It will enable us to engage great artists, commission new work, and develop the residency program.

Giving to the Music Program

Your donation will be used to support outstanding artists in the forthcoming season.

Leaving a Bequest

Your legacy can be directed to the Endowment Fund or a special project.

Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible and the UKARIA Foundation is able to receive distributions from private and public ancillary funds. UKARIA is on the Register of Cultural Organisations and has DGR 1 status. UKARIA is an Australian public company limited by guarantee bearing the ABN 32 140 081 223.

Thank you for considering a donation to support great artists, live performances and new works. Please consider making a donation before 30 June 2023 and your gift will be matched by our founder, Ulrike Klein AO.
