The Kay & Burton Foundation Board is pleased to announce that St Kilda Mums and Kids Under Cover are to be the inaugural charities the Foundation will support.

Kay & Burton has a long history of supporting causes across many communities. The Kay & Burton Foundation was created to formalise the philanthropic endeavours for Kay & Burton employees, clients and its beneficiaries. It operates with its own Board, constitution and is registered under the Fundraising Act.

‘Home’ is more than a significant asset; it holds memories, the most important life experiences and has a sanctity for many families. ‘Home’ also provides the most basic needs of security, safety, rest and warmth. Kay & Burton is privileged to manage some of the best residential real estate across Stonnington, Boroondara, Bayside and the Mornington Peninsula. The Kay & Burton Foundation pledges to align its philanthropic endeavours with causes that align with the feeling of ‘Home’.

Seed funding of $100,000 has been pledged by the Board of the Kay & Burton Group to the Foundation for the 2021/22 year and the Foundation has recently gone through a process to determine which charities best fit the ‘feeling of home’.

The Foundation Board is pleased to announce that St Kilda Mums and Kids Under Cover are to be the inaugural charities the Foundation will support.

St Kilda Mums is a wonderful organisation that supports babies and families with necessary equipment and will provide Kay & Burton staff with a unique opportunity to engage directly in its programs.

Kids Under Cover is an impressive organisation and provides early intervention to prevent young people from becoming homeless by installing studio apartments in backyards and nurturing the young to become independent.

Further information and inductions about St Kilda Mums and Kids Under Cover will be forthcoming; along with a program of activity about the Foundation including formal launch.
