Education Development Fund

From little things big things grow and thanks to the generosity of Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Western Australia (CCI) Members, our future workforce is being given a chance to flourish.

Many CCI Members take the opportunity to make a voluntary contribution to the Education Development Fund when they pay their annual fees.

Contributions not only feed a desire to meet social corporate responsibilities, but allow businesses large and small to contribute what they can, knowing that whatever the amount it will go a long way to achieving significant outcomes.


How Member contributions to the Education Development Fund help CCI make a difference: 

  • Prepare guides for students and graduates and deliver workforce education programs to schools and community groups
  • Sponsor academic excellence and teacher of the year awards
  • Run student economic forums to encourage high school students studying economics to prepare for their exams and start considering career aspirations that can be built from an economics degree
  • Host boardroom lunches to work with disengaged youth
  • Provide funding support for the annual Teachers' Engagement Forum, aimed at assisting teachers with strategies to work with disengaged youth
  • Run personal development days for teachers to get access to industry professionals
  • Deliver parent talks about how to guide young people through career decisions
  • Send staff to places like prisons, where we provide career advice to help people transition back into the workforce
  • Sponsor events such as the Perth Special Children’s Christmas Party and the Youth Futures Pipeline Challenge
  • Sponsor and participate in youth development initiatives such as Get Into Resources, Youth Connect Skills Expo and Just Start IT
