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.Read more about us

Meet the Team 👋 Kate Kershaw isn’t new to Gumala, being a Member herself, but she has also worked with GAC prior to her role in GIPL, starting in the GAC finance team in 2019. She then moved into GAC's Projects team, helping Jo Coleman roll out Gumala’s Housing Program. Kate is now our Property Management & Social Investments Project Officer here at GIPL. Kate loves to travel, and as a family with 2 young boys they love to get outdoors, heading off to fish, camp, and go on adventures! As a Member, she really enjoys working in a role that supports her community. She’s excited to learn more about the investment side of Gumala, whilst continuing to support the Housing Program through her work.
The Gumala Trust acknowledges and pays respect to the past, present and future Traditional Custodians and Elders of this nation and the continuation of cultural, spiritual and educational practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
