Estonian Cultural Foundation to support renovations to Sydney Estonian House

The Estonian Cultural Foundation in Australia (ECFA) uses its funds every year to support various groups or projects which aim to further Estonian culture and language across Australia, and bring together people with Estonian heritage or interests. This includes any activities held anywhere in Australia, and we look at these as partnerships where we support these activities. Donations and bequests are most welcome, to keep on supporting Estonian culture and heritage across Australia.

To date, the ECFA has been allocating grants within the limits of profits generated from it’s investments. Accordingly, this year the Board of the ECFA announced it was able to award grants totalling $15,550 to various worthy Estonian cultural projects.

However, following further discussions and considerations, the ECFA has made an exceptional decision to access it’s investments and provide additional financial support this year to what it considers a very important project – the urgent upgrade of Sydney Estonian House.

The Estonian Cultural Foundation of Australia (ECFA) has decided to underwrite the costs of the recently announced Stage One renovation of the Sydney Estonian House, to a maximum of $100,000
