Our latest Community Investment round opens on March 8, 2021. This round closes at close of business on 12 April, 2021.
A cornerstone of the Community Bank model is the sharing of profit with the community. With this in mind we invite community groups, to apply for community investment funding.
All categories of community groups are invited – sports and leisure, education, culture and the arts, health and social, children and youth, the elderly to name a few. And community investment can be applied for to support an upcoming event, activity or project that your organisation is planning.
Community investment proposals are open to organisations (not individuals) and are assessed on their capacity to benefit the community and to promote the Warburton and Yarra Junction Community Bank branches.
Applicants must have an ABN or have a Project Partner who holds an ABN, and community investment cannot be provided retrospectively.
