Community funding

Community Enterprise Foundation™, Bendigo Bank's charitable arm, helps Australian communities with grants, scholarships and community focused appeals.

Every dollar donated to the bushfire appeals will go directly to impacted communities.

Thank you

We’re working with not-for-profits, eligible charities and, more importantly, impacted communities. Every donated dollar will make a difference. We ensure our processes benefit all impacted communities in the short and long-term. You can be confident that every dollar donated goes to those in need.

We'll continue to share stories of communities receiving much needed help. We also wish to acknowledge donors, big and small, who have been so generous.

All power to Kangaroo Island SA

One of the most sought-after items on Kangaroo Island are generators. Your donations have gone towards the latest delivery. Purchased from a local business, they are now providing power for individuals, businesses and community groups.

One recipient, a local horticulturalist, can now begin to rebuild his family home and orchards.

A self-confessed environmentalist, who works off the grid, received another. She can now get her business back on track and provide power to volunteers working with injured and potentially endangered wildlife and natural habitat.

Thank you!

Rebuilding - one fence at a time

BlazeAid and regional Australian farmers say thank you! This amazing organisation had volunteers across three states ready to go at a moments notice.

Today, thanks to your donations, they have the funds to get on with the work and help regional Australia begin the rebuilding process.

Thank you!
