We value giving back and so do our people. That's why our community programs and partnerships are so important to us.
Because we care We want to change the way the world experiences property.
We are committed to delivering on our purpose for everyone。 We believe everyone deserves to have a safe place to sleep, every night。 To help make this a reality, we have formed a number of partnerships with charities who know a lot more about this than we do。
These partnerships form our Because We Care program, along with our community programs our people participate in.
We first partnered with Launch Housing in 2014, an independent community organisation providing housing and homelessness support services. Together we launched a National Rapid Rehousing Fund in 2015 to support women and children who are at risk of, or experiencing, homelessness as a result of family violence. The National Rapid Rehousing Fund provides financial support to women and children, with things like paying bonds, paying rent and buying household goods.
To give a little extra help, our new recruits build furniture for families in need as part of our employee induction.
Orange Sky Australia provides a platform for every day Australians to connect via regular laundry and shower services。
Our partnership helps to expand their fleet of Orange Sky Laundry and Orange Sky Shower vans, as well as the new Orange Sky Digital cars.
International Committee of the Red Cross
Our partnership with the International Committee of the Red Cross, helps to support the humanitarian work they do throughout Asia and the Pacific。 It provides opportunities for our people throughout Asia to give back in their local area。
The Big Issue Women’s Subscription Enterprise
We support the Big Issue Women’s Subscription Enterprise that provides employment for marginalised or disadvantaged women who package magazines from the safety and comfort of a Big Issue office。
Our CEO Owen Wilson also participates in the annual CEO Selling initiative, where CEOs team up with Big Issue vendors to sell magazines and raise awareness about The Big Issue and funds for the vendors.
Created in collaboration with founding partners Infoxchange, News Corp, Google, Ask Izzy is a website that provides access to more than 350,000 homelessness support services across housing, meals, healthcare, counselling, legal advice, addiction treatment and more.
Because we care Our people like to give back to causes close to their hearts.
In our Because We Care program, our people can support causes they are passionate about through volunteering, matched payroll giving, employee community grants and fundraising.
Matched Payroll Giving
Our people can donate to the charities that matter most to them out of their pre-tax salary。 And we match their donations, dollar for dollar, up to $500 a year。
Every employee in Australia has one paid day of volunteer leave each year。 Unused days go into the volunteer bank and can be used by others。
Employee Community Grants
Each year we award 60 community grants, up to $1000. These grants support community groups our people and their families are involved in.
We select four national fundraisers for our Australian business to support each year. In FY18, we supported Beyond Blue, Act for Peace, Polished Man and Kids Under Cover.
Our Community Café

Because We Care Asia We've extended REA Group’s Because We Care program to Asia.
足彩胜负14场In 2018 we extended REA Group’s Because We Care program to Asia, with the launch of paid volunteer leave and a Matched Giving program, supported by a network of community champions。 Each of our teams across Asia selected three volunteer leave charity partners and one matched giving charity partner to support this financial year。
Our new Because We Care Asia program enables every one of our people in Asia to take a day of paid leave to volunteer with one of their country’s chosen volunteer leave charity partners every year. In addition, all donations to their country’s selected matched giving charity partner will be matched with a company contribution.
