The Insurance Advisernet Foundation commenced in March 2016 with the aim of supporting local Australian organisations that work to help change the lives of individuals, families and communities for the better.
A number of our Authorised Representatives and staff have committed to donate to the IA Foundation and Insurance Advisernet has agreed to match that donation.
It may be just five months since the IA Foundation was officially launched, but we’re delighted to announce the Foundation has already donated over $100,000 to Australian charities and community causes.
Insurance Advisernet Founder and Chairman Ian Carr says it’s something every member of the Insurance Advisernet family should feel very proud of.
In a very short space of time we’ve been able to support 16 hugely important causes through a series of donations.
Rather than rest on its laurels, Carr suggests the Foundation is only getting started.
He also reiterates the Foundation’s desire to support local causes close to the hearts of our ARs across the country.
“We hope to double our contributions in the coming six months,” Carr says. “ARs who want to get involved can nominate a charity or cause they’d really like to support with a short explanation of how the money will help to make a difference. It’s a very simple process, but we’re already seeing the impacts can be quite profound, even humbling.”
A major IA Foundation fundraising initiative will take place from 16-19 October 2016 on Hamilton Island, coinciding with the annual IA Conference.
AR’s, staff and guests will be invited to take part in the Neville Grenfell Charity Golf Classic Raffle and a Major raffle and auction at the Gala Awards dinner with fantastic prizes such as three nights, including a $500 airfare voucher, to Hamilton Island’s world famous Qualia resort.
The Foundation is aiming to raise over $50,000 to support nominated Charities in the lead-up to Christmas 2016, typically a difficult time for Australians doing it tough
