About Us

Make giving a way of living in WA


We like to think of Giving West as more than just an organisation; we see it as an ethos, a way of life in WA.

As John F. Kennedy said: “a rising tide lifts all boats”, and that is what we are trying to achieve with our call for greater contributions of “time, treasure and talent” from business, industry and individuals to make giving a way of living in WA, and create a better community.

Western Australians have a unique opportunity to make a difference in the community, as recent research indicates that we are in an era of engaged philanthropy, community investment and increased social responsibility.


Giving West is a not-for-profit with a purpose to facilitate and promote effective giving in Western Australia.
