A Background of Giving
The Country Women’s Association of Western Australia (Inc) has always raised its money through the efforts of our passionate and hardworking volunteers through the many branches of the Association.
The Association does not receive any Government funding except for the occasional Lotterywest WA grant to assist with the upgrade of our ageing buildings, some of which are heritage listed or to assist with the costs of organising large community events.
Fundraising is achieved by branches at the community level by focusing on local issues and providing projects and activities to involve the citizens of the area. Statewide Fundraising is held every two years and all branches vote on the charity of their choice at State Conference.
Recent Statewide Fundraising efforts included:
- In 2019: Australian Alzheimer’s Research Foundation in which $50,000 was raised.
- In 2016: Motor Neurone Disease Association of WA and the Motor Neurone Disease Research Institute of Australia in which over $90,000 was raised.
- In 2014: Royal Flying Doctor Service WA in which $75,000 was raised.
