The first of its WA arts donations, Crown Resorts Foundation will ensure that the story of the Breaksea Island Lighthouse and Fay Howe will be recreated to ignite the imaginations of young and old during Perth Festival 2015, which at one stage was in doubt due to a lack of funding.

Barry Felstead, CEO Crown Resorts said:

“I am delighted that Crown Resorts Foundation has chosen this project as its first WA arts partnership. The spectacle that is The Giants needed additional vital funding in order to secure its inclusion in the Perth Festival program and we are extremely excited that Crown’s newly announced National Philanthropic Fund has been able to help secure the event.”

The $200 million National Philanthropic Fund will be administered jointly by the Crown Resorts Foundation Board, chaired by The Hon. Helen Coonan, and the Packer Family Foundation Board, chaired by Ms Gretel Packer. Both Boards offer extensive philanthropic experience with other members including Mrs Roslyn Packer AO, Mr Harold Mitchell AC and Mrs Lucy Turnbull AO.

The Crown Resorts Foundation Board is further supported by an Advisory Board which provides recommendations on the merits of eligible projects.
