The Wyatt Trust has provided support to South Australians experiencing poverty for more than 130 years. We challenge the beliefs that perpetuate inequality because we believe every South Australian deserves a life free from poverty and disadvantage. At the Wyatt Trust, our work has always been, and always will be, focused on helping South Australians. By listening, learning, building our knowledge and working in partnership, we seek to achieve systemic change and the eradication of poverty and inequality.
The Wyatt Trust has been supporting South Australians since 1886.
With a focus on helping individuals, Wyatt has evolved its grant making practices over the years to grow its impact. Since 1995, the Trust has distributed over $50 million in grants which have helped more than 73,000 South Australians.Read More

Our funding priorities
Using an evidence-led approach to grant making that combines community voice, local data and collaboration, Wyatt aims to contribute to systemic impact while challenging the beliefs that perpetuate inequality and poverty.
Pathways for Impact
Wyatt has been on a continuous journey of learning, exploring how we can be more effective in the development and delivery of our grants, and how we can deepen our impact across South Australia.
A commitment to collaboration
Achieving systemic change requires true collaboration and long-term commitment. As an independent philanthropic trust, our ability to convene and connect diverse groups is one of the ways we help facilitate new partnerships and foster networks that support social change.
