Through our commitment to fostering a diversified economy right here in Western Australia, CERI has developed an expansive global network of innovators. To develop the industries and jobs of the future, we have partnered with an extensive range of local and international bodies, all sharing the entrepreneurial mindset and vision for the future.
Owing to a special Act of Federal Parliament, CERI
has received Deductible Gift Recipient 1 (DGR1) status in perpetuity, which allows Private Ancillary Funds (PAFs) to donate directly to us. The potential of this Act is considerable, allowing CERI to work with esteemed Foundations, corporations and high-net-worth individuals who resonate strongly with our Mission and Vision, receiving a deductible gift receipt for each donation.
To date, we have received donations from prestigious partners such as Malka Foundation, Mannkal Economic Education Foundation, Spinifex Trust, Stan Perron Charitable Foundation, Mai Tri Foundation and Perth Rotary. We have also received donations from Innovation supporters, Anthony Torresan, and the Trettel Family, which along with the Bass Family Foundation’s donation, allowed us to establish our first seed fund for startups – CERI Start.
