with thanks to our supporters.
Equity Trustees was established in 1888 to look after the wealth and assets of individuals and families – including advising and supporting their philanthropy. Today we manage more than 650 philanthropic trusts for people who want to make it a focus for their family giving today, and those who are no longer with us. Thanks to these inspired people who wanted to find a way to make a difference during their lifetime and beyond, Equity Trustees is proud to be distributing around $100 million annually in grants and bequests to more than 3000 charitable organisations and causes. Our aim, in partnership with the sector and our clients, is to steward the funds we’ve been entrusted with to unlock sector potential, convene collaborations, empower equity and fund for impact.
The Karma Collective
The Karma Collective is a social enterprise on a mission to help protect and improve the lives of animals in need. Their range of gift and home wares not only look good, they do good – with 50% of profits donated to animal welfare organisations.
From humble beginnings selling their hand poured candles at markets around Melbourne, thanks to their customers, The Karma Collective have now donated over $60,000 and helped animals in Australia and around the world. Their online store now includes many other products including eco products, art prints and more.

Igniting Change is a deliberately tiny charity, passionate about sparking big, positive change for people doing it tough in our communities. We are guided by people with lived experience of injustice and inequality, listening and staying open minded. We value their voices and connect them to others who can more easily act on what they hear.
