#CelebrateGiving

Give2Good Week | 1 - 7 May, 2022

Give2Good Week is a generosity movement inspiring Western Australians to give, volunteer or gift funds within the charitable sector, thereby increasing the positive impact these organisations have on our society.

Brought to you by the Give2Good Foundation, Give2Good Week is a time to share inspirational stories of local generosity and celebrate the many different forms of giving, including time, talent or treasure.

Everyone loves hearing about acts of good in our world and by highlighting the kindness and charitable contributions made by local giving heroes, we provide everyone, young and old, with the opportunity to reflect on how they too can contribute to the greater good.

Give2Good Week aims to spark generosity across the state, so that giving, volunteering, donations and gifts in Wills become the norm for all Western Australians.

Do you know a local giving hero who should be celebrated? Share their story today...
