Our vision of ‘building a better WA together’ is the ultimate contribution we want to make to our State.
At Lotterywest, we work to enhance the quality of life and well-being for all West Australians. Our future is based on a proud history of serving the community. Established in 1932 by the Government of the day, we remain a Government entity which continues to operate for its original purpose – to benefit the entire WA community.
Lotterywest plays a unique role – we are not only responsible for operating the lottery in WA, but for directly distributing a proportion of the funds raised for our beneficiaries in the form of grants to charitable and community organisations. In addition to our direct grants program, our charter is to raise money for the State’s health, sporting and arts sectors.
A cohesive community providing an economic hub for the region linked by vibrant local centres and shared spaces – a place to live and call home.
Our towns have survived fluctuations of fortune for more than a century. Resourcefulness and resilience, along with planning, will hold them in good stead throughout the 21st century. The energy of our people will ensure that the heart of the Pilbara will beat on, and will beat strong.
The Shire of East Pilbara is not just about resources – it’s also about resourcefulness.
From our Indigenous people to early pastoralists and miners, and through to the present day, people have shown their capacity to not only survive but thrive in the heart of the Pilbara.

At Fortescue, we believe our community investments are much more meaningful when we proactively identify and develop projects with community partners whose values and program objectives are aligned with ours.
Engineers, architects and builders have the skills that the not for profit sector desperately need but cannot necessarily afford.
This is where COLAB steps in to provide a much-needed service. We connect built environment professionals with WA based community organisations in need of pro bono services. For community organisations seeking project assistance, COLAB offers a one-stop- shop providing convenient access to high quality design and construction services.
In 1999, the United Nations General Assembly declared November 25 the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women (IDEVAW) and the White Ribbon has become the symbol for the day.
The White Ribbon Campaign is the only national violence prevention campaign, and it is unique in that it aims to raise awareness among Australian men and boys about the roles they can play to prevent violence against women. The campaign calls for men across Australia to speak out and take an oath. An oath swearing never to commit, excuse or remain silent about violence against women. The campaign culminates on White Ribbon Day (25 November) each year, when men and women across Australia are called to wear a white ribbon or wristband as a visual symbol of their commitment and oath.
In swearing and wearing a white ribbon, men and boys can act as positive role models and advocates for change by challenging behaviours and attitudes that have allowed of violence against women to occur.
