Benevolence Financial Group is founded to be a breath of fresh air, born in an industry where distrust is prevalent. As Australia’s first purpose-driven mortgage brokerage, we’re using financing to be a force for good.

What if financial products were designed to help someone live a better life?

Working in banking, we witnessed firsthand the effects and revelations of the Royal Banking Commission. With a deep sense of responsibility and desire to create a better world, we asked ourselves, “What if the most mistrusted industry became the leading force for sustainable change in the world?”

First Time Home Buyers | BFG Loans

Home for home

BFG is Australia’s first – and only – social enterprise mortgage brokerage firm specialising in home loans with a purpose. We call it a Home for Home, with part of our profits invested to build affordable housing for families in need. When you get your home loan, another family gets a home built. 

Our mission is to serve 1% of Australian homebuyers by 2030, which translates to over 60,000 families getting into the property market and over $50 million in donations. That’s hundreds of families provided with stable homes in Australia, or 16,000 in Asia Pacific (at $3,000 per house).

How it works


Finance The Right Option For You

We start off by getting a strong understanding of your needs, current position, and ideal lifestyle. We then compare the market to find the right home loan suitable for your objectives – short, medium & long term.


Connect, Partner & Monitor

We introduce you to the people who can help you achieve maximum financial gain. We work alongside your trusted adviser or give you access to our trusted market specialists.



At no cost to you, we invest on your behalf up to 50% of our commissions to help families like yours get a home. When you get your home loan, another family gets a home. We call it a home for home.
