It takes a village to raise a child. It takes a global effort to help the child grow up free from poverty. It’s only possible if we collectively do something about it. Make a world without poverty a reality by investing in good today.

Why investing, not giving?

Giving to Good Return is an investment because our impact multiplies as it ripples through local financial institutions, their clients, families, businesses and communities.

When you give to a person, you help that one person or their family at one point in time. When you give to Good Return, you invest in a self-sustaining financial and educational infrastructure.

This supports and nourishes the people and communities you have chosen to help – now and into the future.

Invest in good – it’s informed and intelligent giving.

Your Investment

There are many ways to support Good Return.

Please note all donations over $2 are tax-deductible. Since we are a fully accredited international development agency, your donation will be partly matched by DFAT Australian Aid.

Fund small loans

You can fund a loan by choosing a borrower and the amount you wish to lend through our microlending site.

At the end of the loan, you can continue by lending to another borrower or simply withdraw your cash. Our microlending site operates on a different platform and so it needs a separate registration and log-in process. We apologise for this less than ideal user experience!


Donate goods

If you have access to something we could use, we’d love to hear from you. Here are some ideas…

  • Prize items: We regularly host fundraising events where prizes play a crucial role. Wine, homewares and accessories, limited edition art prints, holiday getaways, career coaching, corporate talks, restaurant vouchers. Any and all of these are welcome.
  • Equipment and support: Technology plays a key role in our operations. If you have a product, service, or discount to offer – be it a mobile device for use in the field, a digital camera to document our work, computers or software – all are appreciated.

Your Social Investor

The Social Investor concept is still under development. We’d like to recognise exceptional contributions of our supporters, and offer the opportunity to become even more involved with our work.

To become a Public Social Investor, you’ll need to collect at least 1,000 Good Return points in the past financial year. For a Corporate Social Investor, at least 50,000 points. These points come from any kind of donation. You’ll earn one Good Return point for every dollar donated: money, goods and services. Points for corporate pro bono work will be as mutually agreed.

To show our appreciation, you’ll have opportunities to dive deeper into our work with special invitations to join our regular program updates, annual general meeting, and microfinance presentations. You can also visit our programs, (but you’ll have to meet your own travel expenses). Enter your vote and tell us what you think about the Social Investor concept.
