RSPCA WA relies on donations from the community to raise over $9 million annually. Thanks to your generosity, RSPCA will continue its important animal welfare work.

Cystic Fibrosis

Cystic Fibrosis Western Australia was established in the 1970’s by a group of concerned parents. The Association was a self-help organisation, holding regular meetings to share information, purchase equipment and fundraise to support research into cystic fibrosis.

Breast Cancer Research Centre (WA)

Breast Cancer Research Centre - WA (BCRC-WA) is a not for profit research organisation focused on providing care and support for women and men with breast cancer. We are one of the busiest and largest Breast Cancer Centres in Australia. Research projects, patient education and support services are initiated by the very doctors and allied health care workers who treat breast cancer patients on a daily basis, in direct response to patient needs, all on a pro-bono basis. Your donation helps BCRC-WA conduct research into the causes, prevention and treatment of breast cancer, allows us to provide information to patients, families and friends and, allows BCRC-WA provide patient support groups and educational activities. More than 60 clinical trials have been conducted over the past 15 years with results from seven of these international trials having led to significant improvements in breast cancer survival, altering the standard of care for breast cancer patients worldwide. A great example of our support services is the PYNKS - a unique and special support group for ladies with secondary cancer. As a not for profit with no government funding we largely rely on the support and generosity of the general public. Your ongoing support via ekarma will allow us to not only start many trials awaiting funding but also new support services so valuable to breast cancer patients and their families.

Intework

At Intework, we recognise each person as an individual with different needs, and because of this we deliver flexible, holistic and unique programs, achieving the best fit for people with disabilities to realise their potential. We are committed to providing individually tailored opportunities for our people to participate in employment, education, social and cultural activities both within Intework and the community, and have continued to expand upon our range of services since our inception in 1991. Our distinct individual approach has helped us become one of the State’s premier disability service providers, and we look forward to continuing to provide services that support inclusive communities well into the future. Donations directly support our participants to achieve their goals and aspirations, and all funds are carefully matched to program needs. Your donation could go towards independent living skills programs such as cooking classes, fund the purchase of tools and equipment for the completion of contracts by our supported employees, and assist participants to make their way to and from work safely thanks to transport training. We are grateful for all donations, big and small. In August 2014, Intework helped open the Mandurah Junction Community Garden. In conjunction with LandCorp and Urbis, Intework's Lifeskills Plus participants and supported employees played a vital role in establishing and maintaining the garden, which continues to flourish even today. Intework's ADE program (supported employment) continues to secure long-term, sustainable and lucrative contracts, in addition to renewing existing contracts. We have recently commenced work at the Perth Art Gallery and Hakea Prison, and continue to challenge our supported employees to develop their environmental maintenance skills, thanks to a Memorandum of Understanding with Lochness Landscape Services. Intework's DES program (open employment) continues to demonstrate above-average performance on both a national and State level, with four and five Stars awarded by the Department of Social Services in the Perth South East ESA and Perth Central South West ESA, respectively. These Star Ratings represent the consistently high-level of service provided to our employment seekers - people with disability, mental health issues or workplace barriers - in the open labour market.

Cat Haven

Cat Haven is Western Australia's premier cat welfare organisation, taking in over 6500 cats a year. We are a not for profit charity, funded by donations and our aim is to rehome as many unwanted cats as possible. We are an open shelter which means that we will accept all cats that are surrendered to us no matter how old, sick or feral. We are the state's foremost authority on cat welfare, lobbying for the better treatment and welfare of cats in WA. We operate with a team of 30 staff, over 200 volunteers and over 500 foster carers. We ask that people: adopt, donate, foster, volunteer, bequeath to Cat Haven in their Will. We also offer a great boarding facility, cat sterilisation and microchipping at our vet clinic, and a great in store and online shop. As we receive no government funding, donations are crucial to the running of Cat Haven. Your donations help to keep the cats at the shelter, provide the basics that they need and their general healthcare and surgery if needed, and to run the programs to help get as many cats adopted or fostered as possible. This Labour Day weekend Cat Haven adopted out every cat and kitten at the shelter, totalling an adoption figure of 399 cats over 5 days. Sadly we filled up again very quickly but this amazing adoption statistic helped to ease the pressure on our staff, volunteers and our budget, plus create more space for our poor cats. Help Cat Haven by shopping with eKarma and all your kind donations will go towards the running of our shelter and the rehoming and welfare of our cats.
