Community Give Back
At Halcyon, it’s not just about life behind the gates. We’re passionate about working with our homeowners to connect with the wider community.
Halcyon has long been a supporter of the Ronald McDonald House Charity with our homeowner’s fundraising for this worthy cause. Each year, our homeowners are active and enthusiastic participants in the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast marathon events.
Halcyon supports our homeowners’ involvement in the Story Dogs reading program at primary schools on the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast. Currently, the program’s 474 Dog Teams help almost 2,400 kids in 310 Australian schools each week.
We also support charities including the Cancer Council, Diabetes Australia, DVConnect and the RSPCA through our Friends of Halcyon Referral Program.
Most recently, we partnered with Mirvac and DVConnect to deliver Bella’s Sanctuary: Australia’s first purpose-built bridging accommodation facility for survivors of domestic violence. Homeowners across our communities raised a total of $50,000 to fit out the facility with household appliances and furniture.
Our homeowners also help worthy community causes through Halcyon’s referral scheme. Under the initiative, homeowners receive $1,500 as well as an additional $500 to donate to the charity of their choice, if their referred family member or friend buys a home in a Halcyon community.
To date, the program has generated hundreds of donations, with these funds flowing to more than 250 local and national charities. In 2018 alone, our homeowner referrals generated $100,000 for charitable causes, with the leading beneficiaries including the Cancer Council of Australia, Leukaemia Foundation, RSPCA and Royal Flying Doctor Service.
