Funds spent

Jord contributes a percentage of group profit each year to this fund. Over $2 million has been raised to date. $800,000 of this has been distributed. A further $390,000 has been committed for projects in the pipeline for 2021.

Hours donated

Our people also spend significant time in the field, providing pro-bono support to four strategic partners to date: Bush Heritage Australia (for environmental regeneration), Bintan Marine Park (for ocean protection), SurfAid (for community infrastructure), and the Red Cross (for disaster relief).
