Sponsorships and Grants
We're committed to supporting local communities.
Yes, it's time to feel good about who you bank with.
Our Community Bank branches give up to 80% of profits back to the community. We aim to develop long-term prosperity by supporting programs that help empower local individuals and groups within the local community.
Here are some of our local success stories.
Cooroy State School leaders showing the way
The great Dr. Seuss said in The Lorax: It’s not about what it is, it’s about what it can become. Even at a young age, it’s important to recognise this in our future leaders.
Keen to share their select group with our community, Cooroy State School has unveiled their leadership group for 2020. It’s a fine collection of Year 6 students who are already putting their best efforts forward at the historic school.
To celebrate their induction, Cooroy Community Bank’s, Sam Atholwood was on-hand to congratulate the students and wish them well. As a long time and valued sponsor of the school, Sam celebrated the special occasion with the 14 leaders, including school captains, Ava Castro and Leroy May.
School principal, Matt Bulger said the team is ready for the year ahead.
“Our leaders will work throughout the year on various projects revolving around school improvement and making our school a great place for kids, as well as endeavours to support charities within our hinterland community. Our leadership group of 14 leaders will also work closely with nine other class captains.
“We’re fortunate to have sponsorship from our local Cooroy Community Bank branch of Bendigo Bank for some of those projects, and we thank them for their many years of support to our school.
“We’re all very proud of this group of enthusiastic young people who are embracing their opportunity of leadership. It’s going to be a great year ahead," Mr. Bulger concluded.
RYDA is a driving force behind our local students.
The impact of road trauma remains all-to-real in our community.
The combined Rotary Clubs of Noosa, Noosa Heads, Noosa Daybreak and Cooroy joined forces again this week, assisting in taking 220 Noosa District State High and 27 Noosa Pengari Steiner School students through the RYDA (Rotary Youth Driver Awareness) Program at The House with No Steps at Fellowship Drive, Doonan.
The program sees Year 10 and 11 students taking one day out of school, to receive practical road safety information targeting attitude and awareness of young drivers and their passengers.
The Cooroy Community Bank Branch of Bendigo Bank stepped up again in partnership with its Tewantin Noosa and Pomona branches in collective support of RYDA committing a further $2,000 to the program in 2019/20. This financial backing assists Rotary purchasing the latest equipment that guarantees attention grabbing presentations.
“This program provides some of the most important lessons students can have in their senior schooling years. Our Community Bank branches continue to believe in RYDA, and our Bendigo Bank branches in Noosa are particularly proud to provide this sponsorship. It also provides us with another opportunity to partner with Rotary and highlight the great work they do in our community,” - Simone (Cooroy and Pomona Branch Manager).
A moment in time for Bendigo Bank Street Parade.
Christmas in Cooroy is celebrating 15 years on Saturday, December 7 and to mark the momentous occasion, the theme for this year’s Bendigo Bank Street Parade is “A Moment in Time”. Spectators will once again line Maple Street for the beloved parade, and you can expect there will be some interesting floats from local community groups and businesses this year.
With the Moment in Time theme, we will likely see some flash backs to significant periods from the past like the Roaring 20s, the Roman Empire or even the moon landing. One thing is for certain, there will be lollies, laughs and fun for all to share.
Christmas in Cooroy is one of the most anticipated events of the festive season. With free rides, entertainment, fun activities and even an appearance from the jolly man in red, it is truly no wonder that crowds flock to enjoy this incredible festival.
If you are interested in participating in the parade or any of the other activities and competitions visit the Christmas in Cooroy site for more information!
Christmas in Cooroy is run by the Cooroy Chamber of Commerce with the support of the Rotary Club of Cooroy and funding from fantastic local business sponsors including Noosa Council, Cooroy Community Bank Branch of Bendigo Bank and many others.
Take a seat and cheer on the Wombats!
As we’re all very aware, sporting calendars have been turned upside down in recent weeks, but in welcome news for Cooroora United Football Club a long-time sponsor delivered on a promise that will transform how local fans watch the game.
The Cooroy and Pomona Community Bank branches of Bendigo Bank has added to the decade long list of projects it has supported the club with by helping purchase two mobile grandstands to seat the club faithful at home games.
Club president, Tony McCarthy said the structures are a brilliant asset for CUFC.
“This is the latest sign of our club’s increasing strength and commitment to improving facilities for our loyal members and visitors alike,” Tony shared.
“These two little beauties are another small representation of an evolving, long-term plan for the Wombats and our place within the Hinterland community. We simply couldn’t have done this without Bendigo Bank’s superb support and we’re delighted at the backing they continue to show our club. They’ll allow a place to sit, relax and enjoy some football in a family friendly environment,” he said.
The glue that holds the club together is the work of so many great volunteers who assist the hard-working committee in getting many teams out there enjoying their football. The hope is the season can start soon after Easter and all the training can turn into some game time.
Joining some of the teams before training last week was Cooroy and Pomona Community Bank branch manager, Simone Flavelle. She said Bendigo Bank is delighted to be supporting the club for the 2020 season.
“We’ve been proud sponsors for many years - from helping purchase club strips to the free Cooroora United app, and now these great new grandstands. We’re here to support those who support us by choosing to bank with us. It’s something we all love being part of,” Simone said.
“The club is filled with so many great locals and you can feel the family atmosphere every time you come here. We wish all the teams a great season once the green light is given for the games to be played. Go the Wombats!” she concluded.
Anyone looking to become involved with Cooroora United can do so by contacting the club through any of the numbers on its website.
New shade sail has Cooroy Kindy kids excited.
Over the years our branch has worked with the kindy on small improvement projects designed to make time there even more enjoyable for the kids. From a new playground to a new recycling system, a compost tumbler and frog pond, the sponsored projects have helped the children discover how to support our environment.
This week, there was a celebration to mark the latest addition to the outdoor play space - a shade sail hangs over the much-loved swing area in the playground. Diana is director of Cooroy Community Kindergarten and she said the playground equipment would previously become too hot for the children to use, being exposed to the direct sun.
“This has made such a difference for our children,” - Diana (Cooroy Community Kindergarten Director).
