We were delighted to receive a wonderful surprise – a donation letter from The Stan Perron Charitable Trust advising that the Foundation would be receiving $1 million for our Discovery Endowment Fund.
As the CEO Jenny Allen said “It is not every day that something as wonderful and a surprise such as this arrives unexpectedly and causes much excitement. To say that the Foundation is delighted is an understatement as we continue on our journey of growing the endowment fund to enable the WA Museum to attract international exhibitions, purchase cultural objects and be supported to carry out research projects”.
Growing the Discovery Endowment Fund is one of the major objectives of the Foundation as this will assist in delivering additional support to the WA Museum which is beyond the State Government’s funding.
Without families like the Perrons, this could not be achieved and we thank them for their amazing support.
