Community stories

Backed by Bendigo Bank, Community Bank® branches are owned by local shareholders, run by volunteer directors and staffed by locals.

The Community Bank® branch point of difference is that every time a customer banks with one of our locally owned branches, a percentage of revenue stays in the local community, to benefit you and the organisations and projects you’re involved in. So just do your banking with a Community Bank® branch and your local projects and organisations will benefit.

Across Australian towns, regional cities and metropolitan suburbs to date $165 million has been reinvested back into local communities. And this figure is growing every day across the country.

Take a look at some of the local stories and find out more about how Australia’s Community Bank® network is working to make your town, city and suburb an even better place to live, work, play and of course, bank.
