Community Involvement

Community Involvement


As a group and as individuals, LJ Hooker has a proud past of helping others. Individual offices raise funds on a local level for a variety of causes including local schools and amenities, research into medical cures or the provision of goods and services for those most in need.


Local Charities, Fundraising & Events

We are active members of our local Chamber of Commerce and support various charities, community events and local sponsorships. Over the past few years, our office has contributed to various fundraising organisations including Agape Homelessness Outreach, the RSPCA, Sanctuary Refuge, Pink Ribbon, Genes for Jeans, Be Someone for Someone, and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. 

We have been sponsoring the Feast on Fifth and Cooly Rocks On Festivals and we are currently financial sponsors of local soccer and touch football clubs. In 2021, we invested $5,000 into the development of an innovative Health and Wellbeing Online-Learning Platform through the Palm Beach Currumbin Alliance.
 

LJ Hooker Group Charities & Partners 

Since 1928, the LJ Hooker family have been raising millions of dollars for worthwhile causes. Our founder, Sir Leslie Hooker, was a great believer in supporting the community. So much so he was knighted in 1973 for services to commerce and the community. His belief and actions in supporting local communities is one of the cornerstones that has seen LJ Hooker become the iconic brand it is today.

In 2016, LJ Hooker launched its new charity, the LJ Hooker Foundation, to manage the significant funds raised by its network of 600 offices across Australia. The LJ Hooker Foundation is a registered charity with the Australian Charities and Non-for-Profit Commission, With ongoing commitment to three very worthwhile national charities, Humpty Dumpty Foundation, Cystic Fibrosis Australia and Culture College Arnhem Land Aboriginal Corporation. Our fourth offcial charity partner for 2020/2021 is HeadSpace.
