Community Initiatives

The LJ Hooker Foundation

Cystic FibrosisLJ Hooker hopes its fundraising efforts over the years will ultimately lead researchers to a cure for CF. To date, well over $3 million has been raised for research into cystic fibrosis (CF) – an incurable genetic condition that seriously affects the respiratory, digestive and reproductive systems and results in a shortened life expectancy.

We are also extremely proud to be the only real estate group to have been awarded with the Leadership in Corporate Giving Award as part of the fourth annual Thank You Day celebrations

LJ Hooker Foundation overview

With a long history of supporting our local communities, LJ Hooker takes pride in the many ways we give back – whether it’s across the street or across the world. With the LJ Hooker Foundation, our mandate is to continue our efforts supporting:

Charitable activities – such as our longstanding and ongoing financial support for cystic fibrosis research.

Emergency response – rallying immediately to raise funds for incidents such as the tsunami in Indonesia and the Victorian bushfires.

Community involvement – looking after our local neighbourhood areas, whether we’re staffing a local Australia Day BBQ or raising awareness for groups who work towards improving local amenities.

Social responsibility actions – including the LJ Hooker Group’s upcoming national indigenous education and national sustainability initiatives.

Our history of helping others

As a group and as individuals, LJ Hooker has a proud past of helping others. Individual offices raise funds on a local level for a variety of causes including local schools and amenities, research into medical cures or the provision of goods and services for those most in need. They lend LJ Hooker marquees to community and charity groups, rally around local events, and donate their time and efforts to numerous neighbourhood causes.

As a group, their contributions have made a real difference to many, including:

  • Over $3.5 million raised for the Cystic Fibrosis Research Fund over a 12-year “Partnership in Caring”
  • Over $1 million raised as part of the Tsunami Appeal, which directly funded part of the rebuilding efforts in Aceh, Indonesia.
  • Over $1 million raised for SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) Research through Red Nose Day activities.
  • Over $80,000 raised to assist the Australian Red Cross Victorian Bushfire Appeal.
  • The Bidwell Project through the Habitat for Humanity, which provided a home for a family.
