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.

Our aim is to help you when you need it most.

Helping with grants, scholarships and community focused appeals, we'll work alongside you to achieve your community outcomes.

Whether it's supporting the health and wellbeing of your community, or investing in the next generation, funds will go where they're needed most.
