Our Social Impact

Questions & Answers

Benevolence Financial Group exists to challenge the current framework of the finance sector. The status quo of the finance industry has been strongly focused on profit maximisation. While we understand that this leads to an economic benefit for businesses, we have recognised that this comes at the cost of huge problems in income equality and climate change. At BFG, we use your biggest financial purchase to redistribute wealth and support other families without a home. We call this home for a home – help ensure you receive the best deal on your mortgage whilst financially supporting other families to build a home.

Whilst revenue is critical for sustainability and growth, our model is innovative in how we operate. Our primary objective is supporting Australians with their finances first and then supporting other people. We aim to disrupt the status quo of profit maximisation at the cost of people outcomes.

We have various revenue streams to support our sustainability and growth to maximise both business and social impacts. Through our partners, we offer other services such as accounting, legal and financial planning.

We also have a product range that includes insurances and commercial lending. Furthermore, we are supported by various entities including councils, accounting firms and charity organisations.

According to Social Traders, social enterprises are businesses that trade to intentionally tackle social problems, improve communities, provide people access to employment and training, or help the environment.

As Benevolence Financial Group, we solely exist to benefit the public and improve our communities!

We qualify our charity partners and prove their effectiveness based on effective altruism principles. This takes into account:

  1. Importance: scope – how many people are affected and by how much?
  2. Neglected-ness: How crowded is this area?
  3. Tractability: How easy is progress?

We guarantee transparency by:

  1. Sharing the tax deductible gift receipt with the total donations from the registered charities we partner with at the end of the financial year. As part of our process, we are transparent about the income we receive from each transaction and provide a copy to our customers.
  2. Screening charity partners to ensure they are effective and efficient in their operations and aligned with the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
