Upcoming Event

Grant Awards Dinner

Tues 24th October 2023

The Impact100 WA Annual Grant Awards Dinner is the most important event of our year!

It’s the culmination of the assessments, site visits, referee checks and big discussions, where all those who have made their donations have the opportunity to decide which worthy applicants should receive our pooled donations and be set on their journey to create transformative change in our community.

The evening includes:

  • Wining, dining and celebrating in a premier location
  • Pitches by the five finalists
  • Voting by all donors to determine the recipients
  • Awarding of the Primary and Runner Up Grants

We also offer the opportunity to fill part or all of a table (max of 10) with family, friends and colleagues. The presentations, atmosphere and location are all pretty special and this is the perfect time to showcase what we’re all about.

Invite your friends to become part of this collective giving journey

Newcomers are always welcome – if they get involved, too, then we can make an even bigger difference in our community!

All donors will have received their invitation via email.

Past Events in 2023

 

Generous Australians 2023

Professor Lyn Beazley AO

Our Generous Australians for 2023

was Professor Lyn Beazley AO

Lyn is a distinguished neuroscientist as well as a passionate ambassador for education and science. She was the first female Chief Scientist in Australia, serving in WA from 2006 to 2013 and continues to work tirelessly to promote education, the Arts, and philanthropy across Australia and internationally. Her contribution to society is enormous and her enthusiasm and energy are highly infectious!

We ran a Q&A session where we delved into how she developed this passion for science, her adventures through the world and what she’s aiming to achieve through her contribution. There was a little time for questions from the audience as well, and we all came away hugely inspired.

We also heard an update from one of our 2022 winners: Tim Hunter, CEO of Motivation Foundation, who reinforced how powerfully catalytic our $100,000 grants has been for an organisation and the community that it serves.

 


Kickstart Sundowner

(15 March 2023)

Every March, we launch our brand new giving year with a Kickstart Sundowner Event.Current and past donors invite family and friends to share and showcase the joy and power of collective giving, and encourage others to get involved. 

There are inspiring updates from previous grant recipients along with a short summary of how we go about making these transformational grants. We encourage everyone to get involved and help create an even bigger impact! It is often a wonderful evening under the stars, forming a great sense of collective passion for community.

For the 2023 year, we heard updates from previous $100,000 grant recipient(s):

  • 2022 – Motivation Foundation: Hear about their purchase of a 3.5 Tonne mini excavator which will improve training quality, as well as enabling students to get real-world and useful experience by participating in local community projects.
  • 2022- Trillion Trees: Hear how their ‘Sprout” school education program is coming along.

We were very grateful to our friends and their organisations whose support helps to make our events so much better:

  • FORM, our very generous hosts, whose excellent exhibition, Really One Story, you can enjoy on the evening
  • Mareena Weston Real Estate, our Kickstart event sponsor 
  • Silverstream Wines from Denmark, for the lovely wines we continue to enjoy at several of our events.
