THE STAN PERRON CHARITABLE FOUNDATION
THE STAN PERRON CHARITABLE FOUNDATION / THE FOUNDATION, ESTABLISHED IN 1978, WAS ONE OF THE FIRST IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA, AND HAS SINCE MADE SUBSTANTIAL DONATIONS TO HUNDREDS OF CAUSES AND ORGANISATIONS – ESPECIALLY THOSE FOCUSED ON THE HEALTH AND WELLBEING OF CHILDREN.
“I have accomplished my boyhood goal and have provided for my family. But far beyond my achievement I am in a very fortunate position to be able to give to others who are disadvantaged and to make a difference in their lives.”
With the passing of Mr Perron in November 2018, and in accordance with his wishes, the Perron Group’s business portfolio is now structured to provide substantial dividends to the Foundation in perpetuity.
Recent charitable contributions include a commitment of $10 million for research to find treatments and cures for diseases such as muscular dystrophy, motor neurone disease and multiple sclerosis as well as $5 million to Perth Children’s Hospital - Centre of Excellence in Childhood Burns.
