Bank appeal raises $1 million
Bendigo and Adelaide Bank’s Bushfire Appeal today hit the $1 million mark – with donations continuing to flow in.
Donations are coming in from people throughout Australia, both in branches and online.
The Appeal account ticked over the $1 million mark just after 5pm today – the funds raised in just over 24 hours.
Significant donations have been made by major companies, Community Bank® companies, staff, customers and the general public.
The funds, to be administered by the bank’s philanthropic arm, Community Enterprise Foundation, will begin to be distributed this week.
People wanting to donate can donate online or call into any branch of Bendigo and Adelaide Bank. At this stage, phone donations cannot be accepted.
Donations of $2 or more are tax-deductible.
