Good Return is grateful to our Social Investors for their support of our work aimed at empowering and giving a voice to the poorest communities of the Asia-Pacific region.
Thinktank is Australia’s leading independent commercial property lender.
Commencing in May of 2014, Thinktank’s commitment to Good Return is to contribute $100 for every new loan settlement that Thinktank completes and on each occasion, extend an open, no obligation, invitation to their partners in the transaction, to match their amount.
Based on a natural alignment between the two organisations, our relationship continues to strengthen and grow. Good Return would like to express our sincere thanks to Thinktank for their ongoing and generous support.
Driven by their belief that it is important to give back and their desire to involve their children in their philanthropy Paul and Sandra Salteri established CAGES Foundation as a Private Ancillary Fund (PAF) in 2009. The Foundation made its first impact investment in 2014 and by 2016 had moved 20% of its portfolio into impact investing.
In 2016, CAGES Foundation made an impact investment loan of $100,000 to Good Return. The investment will match loans made through the Good Return website up to $100,000.
The English Family Foundation is passionate about supporting ambitious changemakers that have the vision and drive to tackle major social issues. Their vision is to support transformational change in our world through the growth and development of social entrepreneurs and social businesses.
The English Foundation provided funding to enable Good Return to provide targeted capacity building, advice and guidance to the National Bank of Cambodia to develop its own National Strategy for Financial Capability and Consumer Protection, as well as design and co-create a National Consumer Campaign – Let’s Talk Money. The campaign exceeded all targets, reaching over a million Cambodians across the various channels of Facebook, TV, SMS, and Radio.
Established by its members over 50 years ago, CIRCLE Alliance Bank is a niche financial services organisation that assists over 5,000 members across Australia.
One of Circle’s objectives is to make a social impact through the provision of banking services. In 2016, Good Return and CIRCLE entered into a relationship based on a strong match of both their business and social values. For every home loan a member takes out with CIRCLE, they commit $100 toward a Good Return microloan. As these microloans are repaid the funds are used to support Good Return’s financial education and skills development programs.
