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 4.8 MILLION DOLLARS
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 – Sponsorships or Grants - from Upper Yarra Community Enterprise are reminded that an acquittal (Project Completion Report) is required.
A number of Project Completion Reports are outstanding. If yours falls into this category, please submit it ASAP.
In the event that your project has not yet been completed you WILL STILL NEED TO SUBMIT AN UPDATE using the same Community Investment Acquittal form.
PLEASE SUBMIT ACQUITTALS HERE ONLINE> Community Investment Acquittal
