Our Impact

In Financial Services’ goal is to provide a pathway to a higher quality and more independent lifestyle. We do this by providing a service that helps clients reach their financial goals, but there are other things that we do as well.

Not all of us have the same opportunities in life and sometimes people need a helping hand. We enjoy giving back to the local community, and have supported various organisations over the years.

LET’S GO

Cancer Council’s Shitbox Rally

The Cancer Council’s Shitbox Rally is a national fundraiser which takes place annually. In 2017 the In Team put forward their best and bravest to travel over 3,800km from Adelaide to Cairns in a ‘shitbox’ car worth less than $1,000. The fearless In Team representatives raised $5,255 for the cause, contributing to the total raised by the event which was over $1,593,250.

Play Wel for Mai Wel

In 2010, Janine pitched the idea of an indoor corporate sports day to raise funds for Mai Wel. From that moment Play-Wel for Mai-Wel was born and the annual corporate sports day has gone from strength to strength. The fundraiser is an annual round robin competition of indoor sports, with local businesses banding together for a day of team-building fun and fundraising. Money raised goes to the Mai-Wel Group, which supports people with a disability, and those experiencing disadvantage in the Hunter. To date, the event has raised over $143,500, and positively impacted countless lives across the region.

Buy1Give1

In Financial Services contributes regularly to deserving causes through our partnership with the global Buy1Give1 initiative. We regularly contribute to a number of causes across the globe and within Australia. Check out our B1G1 page to read about the organisations we are supporting in 2017.

Hands Across the Water

In 2017 Janine travelled to Thailand to partake in a marathon bike ride organised by Hands Across the Water, an Australian, New Zealand and Thai charity that gives at-risk Thai children and their communities a helping hand. The ride consisted of a five day  trek from outside of Bangkok to Khao Lak in Thailand, totalling 500km. The event raised over $384,000, with the In Team total reaching $8,372.36. The money raised helps to build homes and provide education to more than 350 children throughout Thailand.

Trivia Nights

Our Trivia Night has been another successful fundraiser with previous years’ proceeds going to Hunter Prelude and The Harry Meyn Foundation. It is functions like this that make you proud of your community when venues, tables and chairs are offered to you free of charge because you are trying to raise money for others.

Sponsorships and Donations

Over the last ten years our team has sponsored and donated to East Maitland Junior Rugby League, East Maitland Netball Association, Maitland Rugby Union, Carries Place, Maitland Hospital’s Children’s Ward, The Starlight Foundation and the list goes on.  The money raised for The Starlight Foundation was pretty exciting for us as a wish was received in Maitland to help a child enjoy their day!

BNI- Business Networking International

Another way or giving to the community is to ensure local businesses are being looked after and having access to grow their network. Realising this we started the BNI chapter in Maitland, we did a lot of research and carefully selected a core group of businesses to not only build the chapter but also mentor other business owners who had not yet built their business to where they want it to be. Ten years on, this has worked well with the chapter being one of the largest in our area and referring over $4.2 million per annum between the businesses.  The motto of BNI is “Givers Gain” and this is something our staff embrace whole heartedly.
