From Kununurra to Albany – and all points in between – racing has a presence in all regions of Western Australia. The sport is firmly entrenched in our State’s history and cultural fabric, often serving as a highlight in the regional social calendars.

The vast and diverse communities connected to racing guides our giving, with the Racing WA Community Fund established to serve as a driving force for positive change in areas linked to racing, where our presence is deeply felt.

Through the fund, we will nurture and develop the connections between racing and the wider community by supporting programs and initiatives that align with our three pillars of connection, wellbeing and sustainability.


Programs and initiatives that enhance community wellbeing and quality of life in areas closely linked to racing.


Programs and initiatives that enhance the wellbeing for people and/or animals.


Projects that promote sustainability and minimise environmental impacts


Solaris Cancer Care

We’re excited to partner with Solaris Cancer Care to provide vital support for cancer patients and their families.

The partnership will help Solaris reach regional families affected by cancer and raise awareness of support services available.

Our partnership with Solaris demonstrates our commitment to wellbeing in communities connected to racing and we’re proud to contribute to such a deserving cause.




Blue Tree Project

We’re proud to be partnering with the Blue Tree Project to spread the message that it’s OK to not be OK.

Our State’s 50 racetracks are important community pillars and provide the opportunity to catch-up with family and friends, particularly in regional and remote areas.

We’re excited to be rolling up our sleeves and painting more trees alongside the Blue Tree Project team at racecourses to provide visual reminders to never shy away from a tough conversation, especially those related to mental health.
