how we give

Giving Program

a consulting firm with a social conscience

We invest in charities that create and foster environments in which people can fulfil their needs and live in dignity.

PCN is the primary funding source for the Helping Hand giving fund held with the Australian Philanthropic Services Foundation. As part of our Giving Program, PCN has donated over $200,000 to the Helping Hand giving fund (and its predecessor, the Better Future Foundation) and a range of charities.

All referral payments arising from PCN’s merchant services Pricing Comparison service are also paid directly as donations to The Funding Network Australia and The Life You Can Save by our referral partners, further supporting our Giving Program. PCN provides this on a pro bono basis as a community service.

To find out more about our approach to giving, please read this article by our MD and founder, Mangala Martinus, which refers to his conversation with Australian Philanthropic Services that led to publication of the article An Evolving Philanthropic Practice by Kate Stone.

Areas of focus include: disadvantaged communities (overseas aid, microfinance and education sponsorships; Australian indigenous communities; asylum seekers and refugees; people with disabilities; the homeless; dealing with mental health issues); and children’s cancer research.

We are a proud member of Pledge 1%, a global movement that is creating a new normal where companies of all sizes integrate giving back into their culture and values.
