Philanthropy

From the very earliest days our Directors have been committed to building a better future, having donated $30 million over 30 years.  

The sale of the 2020 Good Friday Appeal Charity Home has seen us donate the 72nd Henley home to a charitable cause, an achievement made possible through partnerships with like-minded tradespeople and suppliers. We are incredibly proud to work side by side with these colleagues and we treasure the opportunity to help in such a way. Overall, the total value of money raised and donated by Henley now sits at over $30.12 million dollars. We have achieved this over the past 30 years and will continue to work locally, nationally and internationally to support our vision for positive change.

We are continually finding new ways to assist the communities in which we work. If you think we can help, don’t hesitate to say hello.

 Philanthropic Programs

Our philanthropic program is all about opportunity - to give people a chance in life and a helping hand where one is needed. Our philanthropic work proves just how much can be achieved when individuals band together towards a vision of change. 

Australian Prostate Centre

Henley Homes has proudly joined forces with the Australian Prostate Centre’s “Improve Your Odd’s" initiative, to help put Prostate Cancer front of mind to all Australians. 

As part of the Improve Your Odds campaign, Henley will be supporting the Australian Prostate Centre at the Melbourne Racing Club Foundation Day to be held Saturday, 19th September at Caulfield Racecourse.

This partnership with APC will be just the beginning of our support, as we work with the organisation to promote men’s health awareness in Australia.

Good Friday Appeal

2020 marked our 27th year of building and donating houses to the Good Friday Appeal, having created the initiative in 1993. Our relationship with the GFA has seen 41 homes auctioned, and over $16.25 million donated to the Royal Children's Hospital.

While there was no action-packed auction and street party this year due to Covid restrictions, a stellar result was still achieved for the 2020 GFA Charity House with the successful sale of a fully furnished and landscaped Electra 35 for $790,500, with all proceeds going to The Royal Children’s Hospital.

The 2021 home is now under construction. Find out more about the 2021 home and our dedication to the Good Friday Appeal here.

FightMND

Henley is proud to have joined Neale Daniher's army in the battle against MND. Partnering with Brown Property Group, we built and auctioned a home with all proceeds donated to FightMND.

On Saturday 2nd March 2019, the Clyde North home sold for a huge $700,000!
