A Good Return For Smartsalary

Good Return Presentation

At Smartsalary, we pride ourselves on helping our charity partners whenever possible. A lot of our valued clients work in the not-for-profit sector and we’re only too aware of the great work they do.

One of the ways we assist is by raising awareness – and money – through staff breakfasts. Not only do we help a great cause but also improve staff engagement.

For our March breakfast we partnered with Good Return. They were established by World Education Australia in 2009 with the core belief that no one deserves to live in poverty.

Good Return connects Australian philanthropists with the working poor in the Asia Pacific region, allowing them to make one-to-one microfinance loans. This money is used to start or expand existing businesses.

We share the charity’s ethos that the key to lifting people out of poverty is giving them the tools and education to create lasting financial opportunities for themselves.

Good Return’s representatives gave an enlightening presentation at our staff breakfast, explaining their work and how easy it is for everyone to get involved before running a job swap auction.

As well as educating staff about a good cause and sharing a healthy meal, the breakfast also provided a morning of good company and an opportunity for team building.

The gathering was part of Smartsalary’s month-long partnership with Good Return in support of International Women’s Day.

Their goal for the month is to fully fund the loans of 300 women, which will help more than 1500 people in poor communities. Our customers were also given the opportunity to make pre-tax donations.

I’m pleased to announce that the breakfast raised a total of $2500, including $500 from our generous customers.
