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. Chaired by David McKee AO, 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. Through the generosity of our patrons we have established a corpus and the endowment fund will ensure we remain independent and proudly focused on our artists and audiences. Since its inception Unlike Klein AO has matched all gifts to the Foundation and will continue to match donations dollar for dollar in the year ahead.

We invite you to join us by making a donation in one of the following ways:

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 Fund

Your donation will be used 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.

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.
