Virginia and Districts and Elizabeth Community Bank® Branches support local community
The Community Bank® branch at Virginia opened its doors in July 2000.
With many of the major banks closing their doors in the 90's, there was a real need in the Adelaide Plains District for a bank. This is where Bendigo Bank and the Community of the Adelaide Plains District came into effect. Through vigorous consultation and hard work the Virginia and Districts Community Bank® Branch was born in 1999. This followed with the opening of the Elizabeth Community Bank® Branch in 2005.
To be successful the Virginia and Districts and Elizabeth Community Bank® Branches required support from the local community through start up funding – shares, as well as ongoing support through accounts such as Home Loans, Business Loans, Investment Accounts, Insurance and Retirement Accounts being opened and retained at the branch.
With local community members supporting the Virginia and Districts and Elizabeth Community Bank® Branches through their everyday banking, as they would with any other Bank, they ensured that the income generated from those accounts would go back into their local communities in the form of Grants, Sponsorships and Donations.
Over the past 14 years the Virginia and Districts and Elizabeth Community Bank® Branches have put in excess of $1.0M back into the local community.
