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.
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.
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.
We love seeing the creative ways people and businesses are uniting to raise funds.

Corporate Australia is playing a major role in this appeal, not hesitating to commit vital funds for communities in need. This generosity represents more than a number to those impacted by these fires, to all of us in fact. It represents compassion, empathy and hope.
