Please feel free to contact us and express your interest.
Many of our applicant charities are actively in need of volunteer time and we can skill match and connect you directly where your input might be most useful.
This could be anything from joining boards, to occasionally helping with budgeting, stock management, strategic planning, mentoring, or being hands on deck for events or program delivery.
Volunteering can be one off, regular, or recurring, and it is a great way to get close to the action as well as being helpful and making purposeful use of free time.
Impact100 WA Focus Area Co-Chairs & Sub Committees (FA groups)
Each year we need donors to help us read and review applications and select the eligible, interesting and strong project proposals within each of our five focus areas to go forward into wider assessment.
Every donor has the ability to join a focus area group and participate in discussing the merits of applicants or raising concerns and questions to be followed up.
FA groups generally meet once annually before the First Assessment Evening and each FA group reviews anywhere between 5 to up to 15 initial applications.
FA co-chairs are responsible for organising and attending site visits for final applicants (August/September).
Impact100 WA Sub-Committees
Do you have experience in event management, marketing, web design, PR or social media?
We would love to have extra help shoring up our resources across any of these areas – we can never have enough experience or hands to cover the workload!
Make Someone’s Wish COME TRUE!
All of our finalists submit a $1k, $5k and $10k wishlist. Some of the things on those lists may be things that your business can readily supply at cost, or something that you personally want to fund, click here to see the wishes our finalists have made
Knowing that you personally made a difference can be exhilarating and meaningful. You can be anonymous (if you like) or get in contact directly with the charity, whatever you as a donor prefer.
Imagine if Impact100 WA had 500 members, giving away $500,000 per year with 5 major, game-changing grants – enough for one for each focus area!
We think we can do it BUT we need a little help from our friends! Becoming a corporate sponsor can unleash our potential by enabling funding to go directly into resources such as events, videos, case studies, pr work and social media to bring in new members and keep current members engaged.
Corporate sponsors not only get the feel good factor of aligning and supporting a local, established philanthropic brand, but staff have a platform to engage with, even champion a particular charity with opportunities to volunteer, fundraise etc.
Private Ancillary Fund?
Perfect! While PAFs cannot donate directly to the Australian Communities Foundation (of which Impact100 WA is a sub-fund) we can arrange for PAF money to be contributed directly to the successful applicants.
The best way to grow our number of donors is through organic growth. We love it when our donors want to share their collective giving experience with their network and we can supply speakers (from our committee and/or previous applicants/winners) as well as promotional materials, photos, banners etc for coffee mornings, afternoon teas, evening soirees etc.
Once again, if you are interested in getting involved, please contact us and let us know!
