Canberra Raiders funds raised for Homes for Homes

While the Canberra Raiders may have narrowly missed out on premiership glory, they are still absolute winners in our eyes at Homes for Homes, a not-for-profit organisation created by The Big Issue.

Not only are the Raiders an incredible team, they are an important part of the Canberra community and have been great supporters of Homes for Homes over the years.

Across the past four years, the Canberra Raiders pledged to donate $100 to Homes for Homes for every point scored at a home game. More than $110,000 has been donated over the last four seasons, including $22,400 this season!

These funds go towards our goal to help end homelessness by increasing the supply of social and affordable housing. When ACT properties are registered with Homes for Homes, a promise is made by the homeowner to contribute 0.1% of the property’s sale price when eventually they sell. These donations are pooled and granted to housing providers in the ACT to increase the supply of housing.

Homes for Homes Chief Operating Officer, Sally Hines thanked the Raiders for their generosity.

“The shortage of social and affordable housing is a problem that cannot be solved by one group or organisation alone”.

“The Raiders’ donations make a big impact on delivering more social and affordable housing in the ACT, which puts us one step closer to our mission of safe and secure housing for all.

“In August we celebrated the handover of the first home in ACT funded by Homes for Homes, which will provide safe housing for two older women.

Despite not taking out the grand final we are very proud of the Green Machine, and thank them for their generous support and ongoing commitment to ending homelessness. #WeAreRaiders #WEARECBR
