Community Involvement

Ray White Croydon’s Community involvement objectives

‘To be involved and help those that need it.  It’s not always financial assistance people need.  It’s even as simple as making them laugh or smile (our Blackboard with sayings out the front of the office), making people feel included and special.  But of course, it is also financial or food and the basics.  Really it is an overall attitude that we can make a difference in so many different ways big and small.’

Community Award for Ray White Croydon 2020

See below the list:

  • Foothills Foundation: Our Director Tamara Lloyd is a Board Member of ‘and is on the Marketing Committee of this Foundation.  This foundation has been around for 40 years and supports locals in Maroondah and Yarra Ranges that need financial assistance or even advice on where to look for help as the Foundation is well connected to various different groups including EACH, Anchor, Bridge Builder, etc. 
  • Little Ray Of Giving.  We have done this every year since it started and work closely with our Local Rotary to distribute the gifts.
  • Donations to Bayswater CFC

  • Pinchapoo
  • Community Boards for schools, kindergartens, etc. We have been supporting Good Shepherd Primary School; advertising with boards, their school annual fete, any other assistance 
  • Local small business is also an area we are quite passionate about. We get the team involved by asking them about local businesses they feel need some support.  They are often cafes and restaurants.  We also work closely with local businesses for our vendor gifts etc (Rob Dolan Winery) – we have found by working closely with businesses in our area means that we can help each other to thrive.  Some of the main businesses we have helped promote on our FB page etc are Cinque Ristorante, Miss Lacey Cafe, Rob Dolan Wines, The Public Brewery, Ten Saints Bar, Olivigna Restaurant, Leaf & Vine Cafe, Rumour Mill Cafe, Luna Wedding & Events as well as many more. 

Foothills Foundation 

Ray White Croydon is a major sponsor of the Foundation & our Director Tamara Lloyd is a Board Member of the Foundation.

An event was held in May 2021, which Tamara commented that it was a privilege to help bring together this event that Celebrated women in our community.  Around $8,000 was raised on the day which will go towards helping local families, individuals & charities whose needs fall through the cracks.

Thanks to our amazing Auctioneer Jeremy Tyrrell who did a fantastic job of the auctions!

Little Ray of Giving 

A Little Ray of Giving is designed to collect Christmas gifts for less fortunate people in our local area. 

We have done this every year since it started and work closely with our Local Rotary to distribute the gifts.

SONOCO Donations to Bayswater CFA

Our Sales Agent, Dennis Lim, presented a training session for nine team members at Sonoco to help them with some sales training.

In return, they donated $500 towards the Bayswater CFA, which will go towards updating the vehicle behind in the photo.

John was a past purchaser of Dennis’ and was impressed with how Dennis worked as an Agent & felt that he would be able to help share some of his experience with the team, so they could draw parallels between how he services his clients and how they could incorporate some of these ideas into their business to grow!

Food for Charities

Our Sales Agent, David Egan, has proudly supported the Food for Families charity for the past 6 years now. 2020 was a huge success, the work colleagues at Ray White Croydon, clients, neighbours, and friends went above and beyond to support this worthwhile cause. Together we smashed 2019 efforts of 6 boxes, in 2020 we accumulated 10 boxes, which were dropped to the Wesley Mission centre in Ringwood. They have an amazing setup to look after many needy people in our community.


Pinchapoo is a local charity that helps supply basics for hygiene. It was started by a lady who had the idea of taking the shampoo and conditioners etc from hotels and has grown ever since from that!

Sponsor Boards

We enjoy helping out local communities or schools where we can by promoting certain events!

Connection with Local Pizza shop

We have connected with the local Pizza shop in Croydon; Big Mates Pizza, to give our clients a free pizza with their move-in pack. Whether this is for a Sales property or Rental, we know how stressful it can be moving so we only hope to help take the ease off the first night’s dinner!

Local Business Shout-Outs on Social Media

During the past year our team has started an initiative of local business shout-outs on our social media profiles with the aim of encouraging our community to shop and dine local, and in general support local businesses.

We have found that by working closely with businesses in our area means that we can help each other to thrive. Some of the main businesses we have helped promote on our FB page are: Miss Lacey Cafe + Wine Bar, Cinque Ristorante, WFC Chirnside Park, Mobo Massages, GRIT Team Training, Sara J Hunter Photography, English Rose Salon, Sheils Bookkeeping, Pretty Little Pamper Parties, From Us To You, Ya Painting Pal and Froth N Flames.

Blackboard Inspiration

From blackboard inspiration to connecting with the community – our blackboard is being updated daily with a quote or a fun fact, and we have found that this creates interaction and a few laughs as people walk past our office.

Please feel free to contact Ray White Croydon if you can identify ways in which we may contribute to the community or a worthy cause with which you may be involved.
