Bendigo and Adelaide Bank is committed to supporting local communities.

The main way we assist communities with sponsorships is through our national branch network, with the establishment of long term relationships and commitment from both partners. We believe this provides the most benefit to communities because local people are making the decisions on where funds are distributed in their own communities.

Please contact your closest Bendigo Bank branch with regards to local sponsorship requests.

Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to consider any new national or state-based sponsorship requests, as we are committed to existing long term partnerships.

For other community funding options, please keep an eye on Community Enterprise Foundation’s Community Bank® Grants Programs available in your community.

Our major sponsorships include:

Australian Baseball League and Baseball Australia

Australian Baseball League and Baseball AustraliaBendigo Bank is delighted to be a major partner of the Australian Baseball League (ABL), and Baseball Australia, supporting the growth and development of Baseball in Australia from grassroots to the Australian national league.

The sponsorship sees the Bank supporting all six national baseball teams across Australia; Brisbane Bandits, Sydney Blue Socks, Canberra Calvary, Melbourne Aces, Adelaide Bite and Perth Heat.

The Bank is also naming rights partner of the Bendigo Bank Little League Championship Series, held each year in June. This series gives 11 and 12-year-old ballplayers the chance to represent Australia at the Little League World Series in the USA.

Throughout the baseball season Bendigo Bank will run a number of activities, including the very popular Baseball Buddies program that allows grassroots clubs to line up with ABL teams on field prior to the first pitch of every ballgame.
