We’re an online trading platform that believes doing good is more important than just making a profit.
That’s why we donate 50% of the brokerage on all trades to one of our charitable partners.
And the best part, you choose where the good goes!
Find a Charity
Trade For Good works as a meeting point between you (the client) and our partner charities.
We have a combined 50+ years of experience in helping people trade on the Australian Stock Market.
We are now applying our professional skills and experience to help people trade online. We use world-class technology and software to ensure that it is secure and easy for you – from signing up an account, to making a trade, with the goal that is it doing some good for the charity of your choice.
The benefit of trading with us is that we are committing half our standard brokerage fee on every trade to a charity that you choose.
How far will my donation go?
Donation to charity
This table is based upon 2020-2021 ATO individual Income Tax rates. The above rates do not include the Medicare Levy of 2%. The exact level of your tax deductibility will vary depending on your present financial circumstances. Please seek assistance from an independent taxation professional for formal guidelines. The donation amount is the brokerage, minus the ASX Fees, then 50% of the remainder will be donated on your behalf, for more information refer to the Financial Services Guide.
How We Share
We charge you the same rate of brokerage as the market-leading online brokers but instead of pocketing 100% of the fee we ask you to nominate a charity of choice from one of our list of partner charities and we will donate 50%* of that fee to them on your behalf.

* 50% of the fee will be donated after ASX and Settlement costs, see our financial services guide for more information.
Note: This may be a tax deductible, charitable donation depending on your personal circumstances.
Question: Why should I switch to Trade For Good ?
Answer: You could find a cheaper online trading provider with a similar quality of tools and services elsewhere, however what makes us different is we put the good of planet, animals and people as our top priority.
Question: is Trade For Good Australian run?
Answer: Yes we are 100% Australian run.
Question: Why doesn't Trade For Good just make its brokerage even cheaper instead of giving 50% of it to charities?
Answer: Trade For Good wants to make this model of giving to charities sustainable, there are lots of great charities that are doing awesome work that we want help. We have decided to help those charities rather than being the cheapest on the street, as race to bottom pricing business model is not very sustainable.
