The network’s charitable arm is empowering its agencies to support local charities and causes through its latest charity partnership.

Coinciding with LJ Hooker Foundation Day (20 September), which commemorates the opening of the network’s first office in south-east Sydney’s Maroubra, the partnership will allow “our offices and their teams to fundraise to support local charities, causes, and disadvantaged schools that are close to their heart so they can receive the brand-new goods they need,” network chief executive officer Christine Mikhael explained.

Ms Mikhael believes the network’s commitment to community, exemplified by the work conducted by LJ Hooker Foundation, lives out the words of their founder, Sir Leslie Hooker: “Real estate isn’t about houses, it’s about people.”

“It’s these words that resonate powerfully within our core values today,” she explained, adding “as an expansive real estate network, we’re woven into the very fabric of the communities we service around Australia”.

Good360 connects charities, disadvantaged schools, and society’s most vulnerable with businesses willing to donate unsold or surplus goods, services, and disaster recovery essentials.

Alison Covington AM, Good360 Australia founder, shared that the organisation is excited by the partnership’s potential.

“Support such as theirs helps us to extend our fundraising reach and connect meaningfully in communities across Australia,” she explained.

As part of the partnership, LJ Hooker reported that its offices will kickstart Good360’s EveryOne Day campaign.

“This will see every dollar fundraised or donated help Good360 deliver $20 worth of unsold, brand-new goods to people in need, like clothing, toiletries, mattresses, and furniture.”

Describing what this means, Ms Covington shared, “this means that if an office in the LJ Hooker Group fundraises $1,000, a cause can secure $20,000 worth of goods through Good360”.

“I’m looking forward to what we will achieve together!” she exclaimed.

Ms Mikhael stressed, “with this privilege comes a great responsibility to contribute positively to the places we serve”.

“I’m pleased the LJ Hooker Foundation and our network of offices will continue this commitment with Good360 Australia and our other charity partners,” she concluded.

Good360 joins LJ Hooker Foundation’s long-term charity partners, Humpty Dumpty Foundation and Cystic Fibrosis Australia.

LJ Hooker has reported that its charitable arm donated $350,000 to charities in need over the last financial year.
