Chief Operating Officer
Working at the Foundation I have a front row seat to the huge impact our generous donors and supporters are making everyday. As a parent of two young children I feel priviledged to do my small part in helping transform the healthcare of sick kids in WA.
Head of Corporate Services
In a nutshell after spending almost my entire career in the hustle and bustle of the finance sector I wanted to move to a not for profit where hopefully some of my skills would be of use. Knowing I might be contributing to improving the lives of others while at the same time improving my own life (by removing some of the stress and urgency in my day to day work) seemed to be a win win for me. I guess what I am saying I wanted to ease up but not stop and my priorities were more about getting a better life balance!
Manager Community Fundraising/Grants Officer
Karen De Lore
Donor Stewardship Coordinator
I have always had a long-held passion for the health and welfare of children, and I am so grateful to work at the Foundation which benefits the wellbeing of children in Western Australia. In my role, I love getting insight into our donors and the reason for people’s generosity.
Manager Donor Engagement
Promoting health of children is the most effective way of improving the health of all the community. Healthier children become healthier adults. The flow-on effects are obvious. If I can help the Foundation do that, I’m happy.
I am passionate about children’s health and working in the not-for-profit space – so the Foundation is the perfect marrying of these passions. As a mother of two, I am humbled every day to work in an environment that supports WA children and families to live happy, healthy lives.
Marketing and Communications Coordinator
Digital and Social Coordinator
Being able to connect with our incredible community and hear their stories reminds me every day of why we do what we do, and I feel very lucky to work for an organisation that is helping to improve the lives of WA’s sick kids and their families.
Manager Special Events
As the manager of be♥giving I am delighted to have the opportunity to combine my passion for events and fulfil my desire to be part of an organisation that is having a big impact in helping transform healthcare for the sick kids of WA.
Executive Assistant to the CEO
After many years in the corporate and education sectors, I am thrilled to have joined the Foundation family and step into the not-for-profit world. It is a privilege to be part of an organisation doing good work to raise funding to support WA’s sick children and their families in their journey to improved health.
After a lengthy career in the private sector, I recently made the leap into the not-for-profit space to focus on work that delivers deep community benefit. I’m proud to work in an environment that elevates the priority of children’s health and increases the quality and accessibility of healthcare through direct investment. My role at the Foundation is to guide strategic thought through to day-to-day operations, ensuring we continue to achieve our goals.
Working here keeps me on my toes, there is never a dull moment in fundraising. The evolution of the Foundation when it comes to technology has been amazing and with the new projects in the works the future looks bright.
It is a privilege to work for the Foundation, where every day I get to see the positive impacts made for children and families in WA through our grants program. Witnessing the incredible generosity of our donors is so inspiring and makes it possible for us to help give sick kids and young people the opportunity to live their healthiest and happiest lives.
