Fundraising and Events - WA


One of the primary functions of the WAOC is fundraising for the Australian Olympic Team.

Fundraising in WA is led by the Team Appeal Committee who oversee the conduct of numerous ongoing and one-off projects in conjunction with the State Government, Team Sponsors, the corporate community and the wider community.

This Committee, comprising of business people and Sponsor representatives is committed to ensuring our athletes have the opportunity to perform at their best while competing at the Olympic Games.

Since 1992, the WA Appeal has contributed nearly $4 million to the National Appeal through a variety of events and facilitation of donations.

All funds raised by the AOC and the WAOC go towards “the preparation, participation and recognition of members of Australia’s Olympic Teams”.

Preparation: includes AOC Funding Grants to assist each athlete in maximising their training potential and to provide them with the funding to undertake international competition and enhance their chances of qualifying for team selection.

Participation: includes travel, accommodation, uniforms, sporting equipment, and living allowances for all athletes competing at the Olympic Games.
