Welcome to The Gumala Trust

In Banjima Language, Gumala means “all together” which is significant as three language groups: The Banjima, Yinhawangka and Nyiyaparli people, came together to negotiate the Yandi Land Use Agreement (YLUA) in 1997. This formed the General Gumala Foundation.

The Gumala Trust (GIPL) has a vital role as the Trustee of the General Gumala Foundation (the Foundation) and has legal responsibilities to appropriately manage and supervise the monies received and distributed on behalf of the Foundation under the terms of its Trust Deed.

Since 1997, GIPL has been acting as a “safe pair of hands” to ensure the best interests of our Beneficiaries are being met both now and in the future.
