Helping Our Community

Published Aug 13, 2018

"Being local, I know of the impact that it has on a lot of lives not only in Inverell but in a similar footprint to where our offices are located."

David McLennan - Forsyths Principal, Inverell

We are always looking to improve our community and the Forsyths Foundation is a way of making this possible. The Forsyths Foundation, formed in 2015, enables our staff to donate money from their salary. Staff in each office nominate a local charity they would like to donate money to before the Foundation’s Committee makes a decision each year. The funds are then matched dollar-for-dollar by Forsyths. The committee donates $1,000 to their selected charity in each office location, then decide on an additional firmwide donation of $4,000 to one of these locations. 

This year the Committee has chosen to donate to the following charities:

$5,000             Brighter Access, Inverell

$1,000             Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service, Armidale

$1,000             Royal Flying Doctor Service, Coonabarabran

$1,000             RSPCA, Gunnedah

$1,000             Heaven Can Wait Animal Shelter, Tamworth
