IMPACT100 WA IS A NEW INITIATIVE IN GAME-CHANGING GIVING THAT IS SWEEPING AUSTRALIA. Inspired by the US model, we connect our community to local charities, working together to make a positive impact, supporting new ideas to create sustainable solutions to challenging issues.


2012-2016 IMPACT REVIEW

INTRODUCTION IMPACT100 WA

I was humbled and delighted to be invited as patron of Impact100 WA. The purpose of Impact100 WA is simple, to encourage Australians to give and be involved in the outcome of that giving. Impact100 WA provides an opportunity for individual donors to be part of a much larger whole. With the organisation operated by volunteers, every cent you give will reach a community group directly. By unlocking grassroots philanthropy and community investment in this way, we are empowered as individuals to support community initiatives at a scale that we may not have imagined.

Over the last 4 years Impact100 WA membership has grown to nearly 200 people donating $595,000 to Western Australian charities. In 2015 we were able to offer two $100,000 grants, and in 2016 we hope to offer three. Initially the aim was 100 people donating $1,000 each, annually. We set the bar too low! The new goal is 1,000 members donating $1 million each year into our community. I hope you can join us and become part of a community that is making an impact for our most vulnerable. SIMON BEDBROOK, CHAIR

This is why I joined Impact100 WA and am proud to be its patron. NICOLA FORREST, PATRON

2012-2016 IMPACT REVIEW

GREAT OUTCOMES FOR ALL SELECTION PROCESS “The rigour and attention to detail in the overall process reassures me that all of the finalists on the night are of the right calibre to employ a major grant effectively. So, even if my favourtie doesn’t win, I’m happy” ONE OF OUR INAUGURAL DONORS

Each year we invite not-for-profits working in WA to submit their initial application for a $100,000 Primary Grant. We have generally received between 20-40 initial proposals which our donors are then invited to collectively review and vote for a top 8 (from 2016 it will be 10) based on merit. These selected charities submit a final application together with accounts, annual reports, board resumés, etc. Each one is visited at their premises by participating donors led by a committee member. Once more, interested donors meet to review this material under the guidance of the Grants subcommittee and then collectively select the top 4 (5 from 2016 on) to make a presentation at our Annual Grant Awards. At this heart-warming and celebratory event, the winner(s) are selected by the votes of all our donors. It’s a thorough, rigourous review that as many donors who wish can be a part of.

GREAT OUTCOMES FOR CHARITIES Opportunity for strategic review: Several applicants have commented on how just going through our process has helped to streamline their strategic thinking and planning Presentation mentoring for final applicants: All finalists receive individual coaching on presentation skills from accredited public speakers Improved profile: As well as creating exposure to a large group of interested people, Impact100 WA works hard to raise profiles by engaging local, regional and interstate press Opportunity to leverage grants: It’s always easier to raise money when you have already got core funding or proved your pilot program New supporters and volunteers: Each year additional donations have gone to secondary grant winners and private donations have been made by individuals heartened by the cause “We were so thrilled to be one of the four finalists and have the opportunity to tell our story to a room full of people interested in giving. It was a wonderful night for us - the $10,000 ‘consolation’ grant was a fantastic surprise and the unexpected spontaneous donation of $10,000 was really the cherry on the top!” MICHELLE HOVANE FROM SENSORIUM THEATRE, 2015 GRANT RECIPIENT

A HUGE THANK YOU TO IMPACT 100 FOR ALL THEIR HELP WITH THE GRANTS DINNER. IT WAS A FANTASTIC OPPORTUNITY FOR AUTISM WEST. AUTISM WEST - $20,000 WON IN 2014

THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME CLOTHES AND SHOES I AM REALLY HAPPY!!


2012-2016 IMPACT REVIEW

CASE STUDY - 2012 GRANT WINNER MANNA INC.

WINTER SCHOOL UNIFORM PROGRAM: Using Impact100 WA’s $100,000 Primary Grant, 1000 winter school uniforms were distributed to 1000 disadvantaged primary school kids, kits included: one winter tracksuit with their school emblem, one padded rainproof jacket, a pair of running shoes and two pairs of socks.

Behavioural incidents down: In the first term of 2012 at a Primary School in a disadvantaged area, 71 behaviour incidents infringed the schools behaviour code, by term four this fell to 35 with only 10 severe behaviour breaches. The Principal said that much of this could be put down to the Manna Inc Winter School Uniform Program because the students now had a uniform that looked like all the other students and they could blend in. 69% of the parents of children at the primary school were welfare dependent in 2012 and the principal said the program neutralises the effects of poverty in the school environment. She said that without Manna Inc the school would not have achieved what it has achieved in behavioural and attendance improvements.

“It’s exciting to see a young person’s face light up when they receive simple items like shoes. Last year. Manna discovered a talented young basketball player who couldn’t take to the court because he didn’t have the correct shoes. We provided basket- ball shoes and he then joined the team.“ BEV LOWE, FOUNDER OF MANNA INC

“The grant gives us breathing space. Knowing we have the money up front we can now think about coordinating next year” MS L SNYDER, MANNA INC

THANK YOU FOR MY NEW CLOTHES. I FEEL HAPPY, PROUD AND EXCITED WEARING THEM.

2012-2016 IMPACT REVIEW

CASE STUDY - 2013 GRANT WINNER EDVENTURES

EDVENTURES STORY: Edventures philosophy is “help others to help themselves”. 3 new schools in WA: Belmont, Canning and South Perth had the Edventures Young Women’s and Young Men’s program run across 18 months. 120 at risk children between the ages of 9 and 12 attended a weekly ongoing early intervention program designed to keep them engaged with school as well as provide skills for life. Weekly work-shopping on key areas such as health, hygiene, job preparation and protective behaviours (safe on-line practices, drugs and alcohol abuse) provided the opportunity to give young people positive decision making tools.

Building confidence and self esteem Feedback from attending students showed 80% of the young people said that they felt more self-confident and that their self-worth had increased. 90% said they now know where to go if they need help. The Vice Principal of a school in Cloverdale said the program had a profound impact on the students taking part: “There are some good outcomes for the community as well as the young people themselves.” “For this program to run for a year it costs about $150,000, working with 120 young people. As a contrast, if a young person gets registered as a PPO (prolific problem offender) those kids are costing the system $500,000 each, if we can prevent one of these kids falling into that PPO category, the cost benefit is plain to see.” BRAYDEN ZEER, FORMER EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF EDVENTURES

REAL GENEROSITY TO THE FUTURE RELIES ON GIVING ALL TO THE PRESENT.


2012-2016 IMPACT REVIEW

CASE STUDY - 2014 GRANT WINNER HOMELESS HEALTHCARE STREET HEALTH PROGRAM There are approximately 9500 homeless people in Perth and their health is characterised by multiple chronic conditions, including mental health issues and drug and alcohol problems, all of which can exacerbate the cycle of homelessness and cut life expectancy. In the past six months, 299 people sleeping rough on Perth’s streets have accounted for more than 1000 emergency department visits, 400 hospitalisations and nearly 300 ambulance transports. An Emergency Dept presentation costs $528, while a single night in hospital costs $984. There are many barriers to healthcare for homeless people, the main one being that they are preoccupied with basic survival - searching for food and shelter. Another is that they often have negative experiences with healthcare services. The 2014 Impact100 WA Primary Grant was used to run a pilot ‘Street Health’ project which put a nurse practitioner on the ground, walking the streets and engaging with the homeless and marginalised, accompanied by an assertive outreach worker.

Between April and November 2015, the Street Health team have had 250 patient encounters, 75 with patients not previously encountered. These nurses provide:

services such as wound care, blood pressure testing and basic check ups that either would involve an expensive visit to the emergency department or just wouldn’t happen

a pathway to the drop-in clinics where nonjudgmental doctors are available at no cost to the patient “Excellent wound care can be provided even on a park bench” SARAH RAVINE, STREET HEALTH NURSE

The Street Health Team deals with the full range of health and social issues facing homeless people and through this supports them into securing stable, permanent housing, breaking the cycle of homelessness. The Street Health program won the 2015 national HESTA Australian Nursing Award for Team Innovation.

2015 GRANT WINNERS EON FOUNDATION & KALPARRIN TWO PRIMARY GRANT WINNERS IN 2015 In 2015, after a huge influx of new members, Impact100 WA had $220,000 to give away. This meant 2 x $100,000 game changing, high impact Primary Grants. Programs will be implemented across 2016/17.

EON FOUNDATION – THRIVING COMMUNITIES PROGRAM EON is a charitable foundation currently working in 13 Kimberley and 3 Pilbara remote Indigenous communities. EON uses a holistic approach to tackle poor nutrition and lack of healthy food through the creation of ‘edible gardens’ followed up with fortnightly gardening, cooking, hygiene and health classes. They also conduct community workshops for parents and elders to improve family nutrition. EON are using their grant to expand the program into the remote Kimberley community of Yakanarra. “I am writing on behalf of everyone at Yakanarra Community School to express our sincere thanks for your generous support of our school garden through the EON Foundation... It will make an enormous difference to the children, in particular, when food security is such an issue here. It makes a big difference too, to the community people who want to try to give their families the best they can.” YAKANARRA PRINCIPAL

KALPARRIN – STRONG YOUTH THROUGH STRONG FAMILIES PROGRAM Kalparrin provide practical and emotional support for the families and carers of children with special needs, regardless of degree of severity or type of impairment. They believe that strong families have a greater chance of providing the best care for children with special needs. Kalparrin are using their grant to run a support program for 2 years that can empower parents and equip them with the knowledge and support networks they need to best care for their child as well as offer respite to sibling children. The component programs will be run by 2 Murdoch University PHD Students and will include: siblings therapeutic group sessions, a Standing Strong Workshop for girls, Mother and Daughters “girl talk workshops”, an older sibling’s “bring a friend” event and a Perth Heat (Baseball) day. “We were over the moon to be recognised by the members of Impact100 WA, the donation will make a huge difference to the families Kalparrin serves and we look forward to sharing with you the great work we achieve through Impact100 WA’s support.” KALPARRIN 2015 $100,000 WINNER

THE FUTURE JOIN US!

The small, Mandurah-sized town of Pensacola in Florida, USA has its own Impact100 and two years ago they hit 1000 members. This meant TEN grants of $100,000 were given away to local not-for-profits. That’s $1million going into their community each year, making a difference across five different focus areas. WE CAN DO THAT, TOO.

MORE MEMBERS MEANS MORE GRANTS AND BIGGER AND BETTER CHANGE IN WA!

SCALING UP For the first two years we focused on Disadvantaged Youth, then we added Mental Health and last year included Seniors in Need. In 2016 we are expanding to mirror the US model of 5 focus areas. As always we will be looking for applications that make a significant and measurable difference to an underserved cause or population but, from now on, they are able to fall within one of the following FIVE focus areas: Arts & Culture - Initiatives that cultivate, develop, and enhance the cultural and artistic climate in WA. Education - Initiatives that provide learning opportunities or improve access to education for children and/or adults in WA. Environment - Initiatives that restore, preserve, revitalise or enhance the natural or recreational surroundings of WA. Health & Wellness - Initiatives that positively impact the mental and/or physical well-being of people in WA. Family & Community - Initiatives that strengthen and enhance the lives of children and families in WA. Surely there is something in there to ignite your passion! If you aren’t already, become a member by logging on to www.impact100wa.org.au and take your first step toward becoming part of this force for change in WA.
