What is your money supporting?
By banking with us, your money helps create positive impact.
We lend to a range of not-for-profit community customers who provide vital services, advocacy and support in areas like family violence, disability support, refugee assistance, the arts, social services and environmental conservation.
We also assist community customers with long-term partnerships and grants for projects that support positive outcomes for people and the planet through our Bank Australia Impact Fund, where we allocate 4% of our after tax profits.
A snapshot of what we lend to:
Victorian Pride Centre
In 2019, construction kicked off on Fitzroy Street, St Kilda for Australia’s first dedicated centre for LGBTIQ community services and organisations, the Victorian Pride Centre (VPC).
Zoe Support provides holistic, place-based support for young mums in Mildura to reengage them in education. We’ve provide a loan to purchase a permanent space for Zoe Support’s operations.
Why this is important
Providing loans can allow these organisations to have financial stability in sometimes uncertain funding environments, or to purchase a permanent premise that reduces costs and offer an enduring legacy for their organisation.
At Bank Australia, we share a common purpose with our community customers - together we’re committed to creating an inclusive Australia with a healthy environment to sustain us now and into the future.
