CFMG Capital – Supporting the Local Community in May

At CFMG Capital, we don’t just deliver aspirational addresses to emerging communities – we also strive to give back to the local community and provide assistance to those in need. During May the CFMG Capital team raised funds for multiple charities and NFP foundations, with the trend continuing into June.

Building relationships with various communities is a part of what we do every day at CFMG Capital. So it seemed only natural that the CFMG Capital team volunteer their time to deliver meals for Queensland Meals on Wheels. From May onwards, we will take part in the Crosby Park Meals on Wheels delivery run on a regular basis.

The CFMG Capital team love morning tea... but morning tea tastes even better when fundraising for a very worthy cause! We put our oven mits on and got together for Australia's Biggest Morning Tea, with both sweet and savoury treats (and a little friendly competition for #1 dish). The main driver for this however, was to raise funds for Cancer Council Australia.

Fundraising for Cancer Council Australia

The 2018 Shitbox Rally is an annual event dedicated to raising much needed funds to support cancer research (an independently-run fundraiser for Cancer Council Australia). A convoy of cars trek from Brisbane to Darwin over 7 days through the outback, in vehicles worth no more than $1,000. CFMG Capital proudly sponsored Support 17, a father/son team taking part in the Rally with a mission to raise $10,000 for cancer research (to date, they’ve raised over $7,000).

In continuation of this theme, the executive team of CFMG Capital will be joining many others participating in the Vinnies CEO Sleepout on June 21st, in an effort to raise money and awareness for St Vinnies, and help break the cycle of homelessness in Australia.

  • In Australia more than 116,427 people are homeless — 22,000 are Queenslanders;
  • More than 24,000 people are homeless because of domestic and family violence;
  • 2.35 million Australians (one in eight) have experienced homelessness at some point in their life; and
  • 32% of Australia’s homeless population are children.

Thinking about those numbers right now, this means there are likely more than 5,000 homeless children in Queensland right now – mind boggling, and heart breaking.

As an active developer in Queensland property market, CFMG Capital are collectively shocked at the statistics listed above, particularly when it comes to the sheer volume of children living on the streets, often as a result of domestic or family violence.
