Bank Australia: Community Customer Grants

Posted on March 12, 2020

Community Customer Grants

Each year we invest 4% of after-tax profits into the Bank Australia Impact Fund to support projects that contribute to the mutual prosperity of people and the planet.

As a customer owned bank, we think it’s important to support the incredible community organisations who choose to bank with us – and by doing so, be part of the clean money movement.

So, every year, we use part of our Impact Fund to offer our Community Customer Grants.

What are the Community Customer Grants?

Our Community Customer Grants are for our community customers – organisations not individuals – who are having amazing impact for people or the planet.

2020 Community Customer Grants open 2 March and close 10 April. Each community customer can apply for a grant of up to $10,000.

Your organisation needs to have banked with us for 1 year at 30 June 2020 to be eligible.

Our Community Customer Grants fund projects that have a positive impact in areas that are important to our customers:

  • Climate change
  • Environmental conservation
  • Refugees and people seeking asylum
  • Promoting diversity and inclusion of people and communities (including people who are LGBTQI+, live with disability, or are experiencing financial or educational exclusion)
  • Family and gendered violence
  • Homelessness
  • Reconciliation
  • Animal welfare
