You can support us

As the largest family and domestic violence specialists in Western Australia we are at the forefront of positive, solutions focused change and determined to achieve our mission by drawing upon our proven strategic acumen.

  • Unique solutions focused approach
    • Organisational resolve to implement considered, fact based initiatives/programs  to achieve best practise client outcomes and maximum community benefit
    • Pioneering prevention through the development of the first evidence based Tactical Family and Domestic Violence Primary Prevention Plan in metropolitan Perth and the development of Just Cause, a powerful family violence awareness campaign
  • Proven strategic acumen
    • The foresight of the PGCNV 2020-2023 strategic plan has become evident through its alignment with the subsequent release of Western Australia’s 10-year Strategy to Reduce Family and Domestic Violence, and  the February 2021 McGowan Government election promises to help prevent family and domestic violence. Many of our strategic initiatives have also received anecdotal acknowledgement from well-respected sector agencies and funders for their timeliness and innovation.

We can’t achieve our mission alone, this is a whole of community problem that needs a whole of community response.

All contributions will help reduce the soaring family and domestic violence  statistics, breakdown the stigma and ensure everyone that needs assistance feels comfortable seeking it. This is an issue that does not discriminate. Below are numerous ways you can help support our activities across the family and domestic violence continuum – tertiary crisis care, secondary intervention and primary intervention.

Workplace Giving

There are a few options to make it easy for workplaces to demonstrate a strategic commitment to corporate community investment and for employees to support worthy causes.

How Do I Set It Up For My Organisation?

  • As workplace giving specialists there are third party platforms that provide the latest technology to streamline the process for your payroll team and increase employee engagement by enabling them to select charities, choose a donation amount and manage their ongoing contributions.
  • You may wish to look at Good2Give or Goodcompany to find out more.

What are my tax deductible giving options as an employee?

  • If you are an employee please contact your payroll or human resources department at your workplace to discuss how you can make regular tax deductible donations directly from your pay. It may be useful to supply them with the information above if there is not already a workplace giving program in place.
  • Regular donations can also be made directly to us through GiveNow.

Just Cause

Just Cause is the family and domestic violence awareness campaign and social enterprise brand for Patricia Giles Centre for Non-Violence.

The campaign was launched in 2020 in conjunction with the annual International 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence commencing on 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and concluding on 10 December, Human Rights Day.

Given the objective to increase awareness of family and domestic violence the inaugural campaign message focused on community education around the Power and Control Wheel. Throughout the 16 day period each of the eight segments of the wheel were explored to encourage the community to continue conversations about unhealthy relationships. Family and domestic violence can happen to anyone regardless of age, culture, occupation, income, education, ability or community. We urge everyone to #becomeaware, be brave enough to seek help, call out disrespectful behaviour or have a conversation.

Leave a bequest

How would you like to be remembered?  A gift in your Will ensures a lasting legacy in line with your community values. Known as a bequest, a small or large donation can be the difference in saving a life and a stand against family and domestic violence that will benefit generations to come.  Simply follow the four easy steps outlined in the brochure below, or contact our Philanthropy and Partnerships Manager for more information at donations@pgcnv.org.au

Olga Ramasamy was a remarkable woman. A daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt and mentor to many who were not even related to her. Olga championed for women’s empowerment and dedicated her life to the relentless pursuit of making a difference in every life she touched. Given women’s causes were very dear to her heart,  it is no surprise that on her passing Olga chose to leave a legacy for the Patricia Giles Centre for Non-Violence.
