WARBURTON AND YARRA JUNCTION COMMUNITY BANKS ARE COMMITTED TO SUPPORTING THE LOCAL COMMUNITY AND ONE OF OUR INITIATIVES IS OUR COMMUNITY INVESTMENT PROGRAM.
SINCE OPENING OUR DOORS IN 2000, WE HAVE SUPPORTED MORE THAN 300 COMMUNITY GROUPS, ORGANISATIONS AND PROJECTS WITH COMMUNITY INVESTMENT FUNDING AMOUNTING TO MORE THAN 4.5 MILLION DOLLARS
For assistance with Community Investment proposals or to discuss other funding options for your community group please contact us by email email@example.com
New proposals will not be eligible until previous funding provided by the Upper Yarra Community Enterprise (or the Community Enterprise Foundation) has been satisfactorily acquitted.

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.
Community Groups that have received Community Investment funds from Upper Yarra Community Enterprise in 2020/2021 or 2021/2022 are reminded that acquittals (Project reports) are now due.
For projects that have not yet been completed you WILL STILL NEED TO SUBMIT AN UPDATE using the same acquittal form.
PLEASE SUBMIT YOURS HERE ONLINE> Community Investment Acquittal
