The Annual Report 2021-22 and Special Purpose Financial Report for year ended 30th June 2022 are now available on our website.
The Annual Report highlights how 2021-22 was a turning point for ECF, with the Board considering the closure of the Foundation in 2022-23, while still seeking to progress a series of projects under its Objectives. Thinking of a future beyond the Foundation, ECF sought to advance proposals that support the agenda of the Foundation and encourage other organisations to work and advocate for the Estuary.
Progress was made in 2021-22 with
- Mark Butler MP giving a commitment, pre-election, to support the continuation of shellfish reef restoration work in the Port River, with funding to OzFish from the ALP’s Urban Catchments and Waterways program.
- Funding secured by the City of Port Adelaide Enfield for a Living Shoreline at the proposed Aboriginal Cultural Centre
- ECF raising funds ($20K) for a Swimming Pool Scoping Study
- ECF, with Learning with Labyrinths, securing funding from Council for a Coastal Native Food Plants Labyrinth at Taperoo (jointly funded with Green Adelaide) and for half the funds needed for a Painted Labyrinth at Harts Mill
- Formation of Labyrinths on LeFevre
The Special Purpose Financial Report identifies
- Total Income of $43,400 (grants, funds raised and donations)
- Expenditure of $18,720
- Excess grant funding carried forward to next year $23,126 and
- Surplus $1,554
