Local Support and Fundraising

At First National Real Estate Ararat we pride ourselves on our strong commitment to our local community and we continue to sponsor over 50 organisations & community groups each year.

Members of our team are also involved in service clubs & community groups of Ararat such as Lions club, schools, various charity organisations, the Ararat Regional Business Association and also various sporting groups including football, netball, bowls, golf and horse clubs. As a business we are also proud to sponsor& support all of those community groups.

Our staff regularly deliver meals on wheels to elderly people in our community on a weekly basis.Our office has been involved with the iTools 4 Schools program. The itools 4 schools program was developed in the western Victorian region to enable local schools to provide up to date technology for their students.

The First National Real Estate group also support the Australian Red Cross and their emergency relief Rediplan through the newly formed First National Foundation, an organisation formed by the group to encourage fundraising activities allowing sponsorship & support to charitable organisations.

Through our numerous donations and sponsorships in the Ararat and surrounding district community we are pleased that we are able to assist the groups and clubs therefore we can live up to the motto ”We put you first”.
