Although we have Waikato District Health Board and Ministry of Social Development contracts/funding in place, this only covers a third of our annual expenses.
80% of the expenses are to cover the wages of seven staff.
We are grateful to our existing funders and supporters.
The Waikato Family Trust aims to always have a buffer in the bank a year in advance, however with expenses always on the rise, the buffer is now substantially lower.
