Founded in 2000, GoodCompany was Australia’s first Skilled Volunteer portal. And in 2007 GoodCompany merged with the Karma Currency Foundation, Australia’s most innovative fundraising platform. Today, GoodCompany is an exciting hybrid social enterprise that embraces both a non-profit Public Ancillary Fund (PAF) with Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status and ‘for purpose’ structures to create greater social outcomes.
GoodCompany partners with Employers of Choice and empowers their staff to give their Time, Talent and Treasure to help support over 1500 charities.
Using technology to help connect those that can give with those in need, Good Company have enabled more than 70,000 donors to give over $14 million in cash and close to 200,000 volunteering hours.

Working in recruitment left Hayley a little disillusioned with the corporate world. It happens to the best of us!

Hayley now gets to help charities every single day, and could not be happier! When she’s not in the office you can catch Hayley DJing in the best clubs around the world or snuggling any animal she encounters, especially her pooch Wilson.
