loans.com.au launches Women, Children & Community Program

After a decade of community involvement, today loans.com.au continues its 10th anniversary celebration by launching the loans.com.au Women, Children & Community Program.

loans.com.au, which outside of home and car lending has been involved in community activities since launching in 2011, announced a new program today that will help local charities and organisations raise more funds and awareness to achieve their mission.

Managing Director Marie Mortimer is looking forward to see what opportunities the launch of the program allows local groups and individuals in the community.

"We put people at the heart of everything we do, and that doesn’t stop at supporting customers with their loans. We want to do our best to support our local community through our new Women, Children & Community Program.”

"Given the events of the last 12 months, many Australians are now in a more vulnerable position than ever. COVID has impacted us all differently, whether it be losing a job to sports clubs struggling to stay afloat to people at risk of homelessness, to a rise in domestic violence events in Australia. There are many not-for-profit organisations working extremely hard to address these issues, and we want to do what we can to support.”

“We’re launching the program during our 10th anniversary as a way to help raise awareness for important causes, like Share the Dignity helping women in need, or the Steve Waugh Foundation helping improve the quality of life for families of children with rare diseases," Marie Mortimer, Managing Director.

The loans.com.au Women, Children & Community Program will help support organisations working to provide opportunities for those who identify as women, families with young babies and children in need and also the wider community.

Steve Waugh, renowned Australian international cricketer and founder of The Steve Waugh Foundation, supporting children and young people living with Rare Diseases, is inspired to be a part of the loans.com.au Women, Children & Community Program and looks forward to its positive impact on the foundation.

"loans.com.au have been loyal partners of the Steve Waugh Foundation for years now, helping us achieve our mission to provide life-changing support for children affected by Rare Disease. The launch of the Women, Children & Community Program will certainly help us raise awareness for our cause, and we look forward to seeing the opportunities it provides for us and other deserving charities," Waugh said.

"We're honoured and proud to be part of such an impactful initiative," Waugh said.

Share the Dignity founder Rochelle Courtenay is also excited to be a part of the program.

"It's great to see loans.com.au work towards gender equality and providing opportunities for those in need. With the support of loans.com.au and the Women, Children & Community Program, we can get one step closer towards our mission of ending period poverty and supporting domestic violence victims in Australia," Rochelle said.

In the coming weeks, loans.com.au will allow Australian-based charities and organisations to apply to be a part of the program, featuring a highlight on the loans.com.au website and a partnership with loans.com.au to support their mission.

The three categories include Women (such as the QUT Female Entrepreneur Scholarship, Women in Digital, Women in Finance, and the NRLW Brisbane Broncos), Children (such as the Steve Waugh Foundation, Baby Give Back and local junior rugby league clubs), and Community (featuring Darkness to Daylight, Share the Dignity and the Brisbane Broncos.
