The Australian Community is a 501(c)(3) Public Charity and our Mission is to connect Australians living in the United States through Social, Professional and Charitable initiatives.
Since our inception in 2011, The Australian Community has assisted more than 5,300 Aussies living in New York and across the US.
As our organization continues to grow, there is also a corresponding need to establish a permanent address, and hire a small staff supplemented by volunteers. However, rather than simply take office space, we are very pleased to announce the Australian Community Center in New York .
Members of The Australian Community transfer millions of dollars every year for business and personal needs. Based on this volume, a preferred rate on wire transfers has been negotiated with OFX (OzFOREX)
If there is a better Foreign Exchange rate out there, we have not seen it!
One of the main challenges facing thousands of Australians moving to the US is how to access US credit, and begin to build a US Credit Score.
The Australian Community has introduced a program where Aussies can quickly access US credit - even before they arrive in the US!
Have you ever wondered if USCIS handed out a manual detailing the challenges facing Australian expats moving to the US, how much of an asset it would be?
Well, wonder no more because The Australian Community is producing a book “Moving to the US for Aussies”
Our members understand first hand what it is like to start over in a new country. They want to connect with other professional Australians through social and charitable events.
This "Spirit of Mateship" is core to our culture, and fuels the volunteerism of our organization.
Powered by Microsoft Yammer, The Australian Community has built the largest private Australian knowledgebase in the United States.
It connects 1,000 of our members through more than two dozen groups!
As a 501(c)(3) Public Charity, The Australian Community supports other charitable organizations who are aligned with the philanthropic nature of Australians.
Our annual #KoalaGiving fundraiser is an example of how our members are giving back to the broader New York community.
