Raine & Horne Foundation
Raine & Horne has been helping make Australian property dreams a reality since our very first day on the job in 1883 — and with the launch of The Raine & Horne Foundation, we’re continuing to expand our long-standing reputation for helping those in need outside.
Working together to make a difference
The Raine & Horne Foundation solidifies and represents over 140 years of charitable giving. Dedicated to providing support for Australia’s future well-being, welfare and environment, each year we will select worthy causes to focus the foundation’s efforts on. The Raine & Horne Foundation will be another way for our Network to work together and improve the lives of people in our local communities and other causes.
Foundation board members
The Raine & Horne Foundation is made up of a dedicated board that includes executive chairman Angus Raine, veteran financial manager Brian Reid and the Franchise Advisory Council (FAC). FAC is a group of representative franchisees that offer strategic advice. As you can see, the Raine & Horne Foundation will be moving forward in great hands.
As part of the launch of the foundation, we have aligned ourselves and we'll be helping combat homelessness by partnering with a fantastic not-for-profit charity called Dignity.
Dignity is a charity that looks at homelessness a little differently than most. They believe collectively we can end homelessness in Australia, and their ultimate aim is to do just that.
Dignity can't get this result by providing aid or just helping people who are homeless. Instead, they empower people who are experiencing homelessness, or at risk of experiencing homelessness.
By keeping people, families and community at the heart of everything they do, and providing essential services, such as a safe place, nourishing food and fresh clothes, they walk alongside people on their journey back "home".
We are excited and dedicated to providing support and funding to worthy causes around Australia, and committed to working together to make a difference.

The Raine & Horne Foundation has donated $100,000 to the Great Barrier Reef Foundation to support the monitoring of Australia’s iconic World Heritage Listed Great Barrier Reef and in particular Raine Island, one of the Reef’s most remote islands located 620 kilometres north-west of Cairns in Wuthathi Sea Country.
The donation will enable QUT researchers to develop a more effective way to count and track the island’s vulnerable marine turtle and seabird populations using Artificial Intelligence (AI), building on the world-leading conservation program to protect and restore Raine Island pioneered by the Foundation, BHP, Queensland Government, Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, and Wuthathi People and Meriam Nation (Ugar, Mer, Erub) People.
