Today, we are launching the inaugural Small Investments Round of the Bank Australia Impact Fund. The Small Investments Round is open to existing Bank Australia business and community customers who wish to apply for funding for projects that will bring sustainable and meaningful impact to their communities.
Bank Australia invests up to 4% of after tax profits in projects that create mutual prosperity for people, our communities and the planet. Through the annual Small Investments Round, a portion of this funding will go towards smaller, localised projects run by our customers.
Funding of up to $10,000 is available for projects focused on:
- Environmental sustainability
- Non-profit/ social enterprise capacity building
- Gender equality
- Educational disadvantage
To set these investment priorities, we engaged with our customers to determine which issues are important to them, and we will continue to do this each year.
For further information, or to apply for funding under the Small Investments Round, visit bankaust.com.au/customergrants.
This year's applications close 15 April 2016.
