Our History

At Foresters we have a long and proud history. Our origins date back to the 19th century Friendly Society Movement: The Ancient Order of Foresters (1855) and The Australian Natives Association of Qld Friendly Society (1885). In 1996 the Foresters ANA Friendly Society was established which, in 2008, re-emerged as Foresters Community Finance – a modern organisation which continues to uphold the original Friendly Society principles of helping people to help themselves.Today, we are one of a small group of credit unions, banks and philanthropic societies who are exploring the use of innovative social and community investment strategies in the modern Australian economy.
