At Monkey Logic we are interested and invested in our community and we’ve chosen to support causes that represent what is important to us. It has allowed us to cross paths with some truly inspiring individuals.
Small Business Development Corporation (SBDC)
Jeff was delighted to be appointed to the Board of the SBDC from September 2012 to August 2015. The SBDC is a West Australian State Government agency focused on the development of the small business sector. Since starting Monkey Logic in 2010 Jeff is acutely aware of the challenges of starting a small business and is passionate about the role of small business in the broader economy.

CHOOK – Children Helping Out Other Kids
In 2013 we were very excited to be involved with CHOOK, an initiative put together by Ben Healy in response to a challenge issued by Malcolm McCusker who was at the time the Governor of WA and his wife Tonya McCusker, for primary school children to do something philanthropic. Ben established CHOOK which asked local families to donate clothes, toys and bikes for foster children in WA. He received thousands and thousands of dollars worth of goods and was awarded the ‘Giving Champion’ of the Governor’s Kids Who Give program.
Western Australian Olympic Council
Jeff was an active and engaged member of the Western Australian Olympic and Commonwealth Games Team Appeal Committee for many years. This is a dedicated group of industry leaders who proactively work at raising funds for the athletes who proudly represent WA at the Olympic or Commonwealth Games. Both Anita and Jeff were responsible for organising the Formal Farewell Lunch for the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games which was a major fundraising event for over 800 guests.
His Majesty’s Theatre Foundation
Monkey Logic was privileged to be closely involved with former Executive Director Ms Patria Jafferies and His Majesty’s Theatre Foundation, an organisation that is dedicated to promoting art in Western Australia, and bringing local, national and international acts to as much of a cross section of the Western Australian community as possible. We share their passion and commitment to their cause and as a result donated our time pro bono to assist in their strategic business planning and marketing needs.
Perth Zoo offers some incredible opportunities to get involved in conservation and education. Monkey Logic are very proud to have adopted the Cotton-Top Tamarin, a tiny monkey that grows to around 20 – 30cm. Considered endangered in their native environment in South America, the Perth Zoo has embarked on a successful breeding programme that has seen a baby Cotton-Top Tamarin born in July 2011.
For more than 15 years, Monkey Logic has been invovled with World Vision through child sponsorship. Currently we are sponsoring a nine year old boy in Rwanda so that he and his community can benefit from some of the basic necessities which we take for granted. World Vision is one of the most worthwhile charities we have had the pleasure to be involved with.
