The Foundation was established in 2004 with the objective of being a permanent fund which could provide the Mission with a consistent and substantive flow of income to support the Mission's vital services. The charitable trust of Neal and Annette Plowman greatly assisted this with matching funds raised by the Foundation.
The Foundation still seeks to grow its capital base while providing the necessary income support. The Trustees take responsibility for careful management and preservation of this capital.
While careful not to cause any negative impact to the Mission's necessary ongoing fundraising, the Foundation does seek donor and bequest support from those who recognise the value of a strong capital base as well as meeting immediate needs - objectives which The Foundation and the Mission see as complementary.
