Broker group charity efforts top $1 million

by Mackenzie McCarty29 Oct 2012

A broker group's commitment to fund raising for charity has seen its combined donations exceed $1 million.

Smartline, along with merger partners The Mortgage Gallery and Mortgage Force, have collectively raised over $1 million for a total of close to 40 organisations, according to the group.

The beneficiaries have included ACT for Kids, Care Flight, Ronald McDonald House, Ride Aid, Day of Difference and the Motor Neurone Association.

Smartline managing director Chris Acret said that not only is the support good for the organisations who have received funds, but for the whole business, including franchisees and staff.

“It’s a great feeling knowing that the work we do every day doesn’t benefit only our clients, it helps many other people who really need this assistance," he said.

Smartline’s charitable efforts started soon after the group was established, initially with a donation of $5 per loan written, which was soon increased to $10 per loan.

    This is a very commendable effort and congratulations to all at Smartline. As a result I will introduce a similar policy in my business. Well done.
