What is Collective giving?
Like-minded people come together to support shared causes. They pool their resources and decide collectively where, when, and how to award grants. Giving as a group enables a greater impact and offers a higher level of engagement and social connectivity.
How does it work?
- Give – Annually each donor contributes $1,000 to the grants pool
- Vote – Museum teams will present their proposals and donors will vote based on “one donation, one vote” at the Annual Voting event
- Grant – the winning project is announced. The project progress and final results are shared with donors via email, social media or specific donor engagement
How can I be a part of the Impact Circle?
- Simply make your $1,000 tax-deductible annual donation. Flexible payment options are available.
- If you have already donated this financial year as an Artefact Circle donor, you are already involved and eligible to vote!
How do I make a difference?
Your donation will allow the Foundation to support the WA Museum in ground-breaking research and create opportunities for world-class projects to provide future generations with the knowledge and context they need to succeed.
