How it works
When you refer someone to Halcyon and they go on to become a homeowner, you will receive $1,500 for you plus an additional $500 you can donate to a charity or cause of your choice.
The person who goes on to become a homeowner at a Halcyon community will also receive $1,500 for them and $500 which they can donate to their charity or cause of their choice.
In 2020, Halcyon aims to donate $150,000 to charity through the Friends of Halcyon Referral program.
Frequently asked questions
- What is the Friends of Halcyon Referral program and who gets rewarded?
Halcyon has a new dual-sided referral program. The program is designed to say thank you to homeowners, friends and the community for referring new homeowners to Halcyon. The Friends of Halcyon Referral program features a $1,500 payment to the referrer plus a $500 donation to the referrers selected charity or cause and for the new homeowner they receive a $1,500 cashback and get to give a $500 donation to charity or cause of their choice.
- Who can be part of the referral program?
The Halcyon referral program is open to homeowners, as well as people and other groups and organisations outside Halcyon communities. For example, your mum or dad can be part of the Halcyon referral program so too can your local Men’s Shed or netball club.
Community organisations, registered sporting groups, special causes, organisations and individuals can also be part of the Friends of Halcyon Referral program. Your organisation could be a school, community group, church, sporting group or valued partner of Halcyon.
- How and when do charities receive their donations?
Halcyon proactively contacts charities to arrange cheque presentations.
- How does the referrer claim their payment?
The referrer will be contacted by the Halcyon team to arrange the cheque details and time for the cheque to be presented. Our team will also contact the charity or cause of your choice so payments can be made.
- Does the charity or cause need to be registered with the ATO?
The referrer will receive payment by cheque when their friend becomes a homeowner at Halcyon.
Halcyon has five recommended charities from which to choose or referrers can nominate another charity or cause of their choice. The entity needs to be a legitimate cause or association. The entity does not need to be a registered charity of the Australian Charities and Not For Profits Commission.
- What happens if the new homeowner doesn’t nominate the referrer when they visit? Can payments be made retrospectively?
For the integrity of the program, referral payments cannot be made retrospectively. Referral payments for the referrer and the new homeowner are effective from 1 March 2020. To be a valid referral, the new homeowner must nominate the referrer at the time of their initial site visit.

Yes they are. The payment would be made once his mother becomes a new homeowner.
- Can my local Country Women’s Association or bowls club who referred a customer to Halcyon get a referral payment? And how much do they receive?
Yes, they can. They would receive $1,500 on the settlement for referring a customer to Halcyon.
- Does Halcyon have to be the seller?
The Friends of Halcyon Program does not extend to homes sold by third parties or the homeowner.
- From when is the program effective?
The Friends of Halcyon Referral Program is effective as of 22 February 2020. Halcyon reserves the right to change its referral program and no warranties can be given. Interested parties must rely on their own enquiries.
