Alliance Partners, Collaborators and Supporters

WA business and community leaders, corporations and individuals are putting giving on the agenda in a bigger way than it has ever been before. There has been a subtle but discernible shift but there is more to do to effect real and long lasting change.

Founding Partners

We acknowledge Azure Capital and Lotterywest for being founding partners of Giving West, and thank them for their financial support and in-kind support. 

Azure Capital

Azure Capital has always focused on more than just the bottom line.  It is a strong believer in corporate citizenship and actively contributes to improving the community. In 2009, the company established The Azure Capital Foundation Limited to assist deserving community organisations. Every year, Azure Capital shareholders donate two per cent of the firms pre-tax profits to the Foundation, while Azure Capital staff contribute through a workplace giving program. The three areas in which the Foundation distributes funding are:

  • Education, with a focus on organisations that provide opportunities to underprivileged children by using education to break cycles of poverty and disadvantage.
  • Community projects and organisations in which Azure staff have a significant time or personal investment.
  • Other projects and organisations that fit with the Foundation's philosophy and are of particular relevance to staff and/or the community.

In addition to financial assistance, Azure Capital's staff give their time to projects supported by the Foundation.  Visit Azure Capital website  


In 2010 Lotterywest provided more than $234 million for the community of Western Australia and makes a significant difference to the quality of life of all Western Australians. Lotterywest is proud to contribute to building a better Western Australia and enhancing the quality of life and well-being of all Western Australians. Each week, Lotterywest gives Western Australians a chance to live their dream by playing a range of Lottery games. All proceeds, after paying prizes and operating costs, go back to the community.
