The Edith and Joy London Foundation

Through the foresight and generosity of Joy London (a south coast farmer), the Edith and Joy London Foundation was established as a field station for the Australian National University (ANU) at Kioloa, on the south coast of NSW. The 348 hectare historic rural property was given to the ANU by Joy London, in memory of her mother, Edith, and is governed by a Deed of Gift which seeks to 'preserve the property in its present and natural state, in perpetuity'.

The Joy London Endowment

A large donation to the Foundation in 1980 was the catalyst for the ANU's establishment of the Joy London Fund for the Edith and Joy London Foundation. The Fund, now named the Joy London Endowment, is administered by the Kioloa Advisory Board in relation to the activities of the Edith and Joy London Foundation (Kioloa Coastal Campus), and supports educational and other activities and facilitates research of direct relevance to the Foundation, with the approval of the ANU Council. Current projects include sustainable development, local ecosystems, indigenous heritage and european heritage.

Donations and support

The Joy London Endowment continues to support the research and activities at the Foundation, particularly in the field sciences and we would welcome further donations to help sustain and maintain the unique protected environment and the property. Donations can be made by completing the online donation.
