About Us

The Perth Foundation for Women Ltd is a charitable organisation registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profit Commission (ACNC) and has approval from the Australian Taxation Office as a 'Deductible Gift Recipient' (DGR).  

The Foundation aims to contribute to projects that provide services, support, and relief for women and girls in need. These women and girls may be experiencing family violence, homelessness, poverty, or are at risk of distress. Our goal is to give them a helping hand and Build a Better World for Australian Women and Girls.

Thrive Gala Fundraiser

The THRIVE GALA for Domestic Violence Survivors is an exceptional opportunity for you to make a tangible impact and stand alongside us in supporting survivors of domestic violence.

This flagship event is jointly hosted by the Zonta Club of Perth, Perth Foundation for Women and the United Nations Association of Australia - Western Australia (UNAAWA).

The THRIVE GALA will be addressed by prominent workers in the field, by concerned community and political leaders, and by individual women who have ‘survived and thrived’ following their personal experience of domestic violence. Funds raised will be tax-deductible, and will be channelled to Zonta House Refuge (ZHRA) via the Perth Foundation for Women. Funds will be utilized by ZHRA to fund the Cultural Connections Program.
