Sponsorships & Grants

You may not think it matters who you bank with. But we know that’s not the case. Just take a look at our Community Balance Sheet.

Yes, it’s time to feel good about who you bank with.

Warrandyte Community Bank® branch has now returned a mammoth $3.2 million in grant and sponsorship contributions in its fifteenth year of operation with $400,000 allocated for use in a vast array of projects, programs and infrastructure within the community this year.

Our commitment to “community” is pretty powerful.  It is highlighted in the everyday goodness of our Community Investment Program which sees up to 80% of the Warrandyte Community Bank® branch’s profit being directed straight to almost 60 groups within the community in which we live.  

It is seen in our commitment to the funding of life saving Automatic External Defibrillators which will be installed across our local suburbs in the coming months.  

It is about supporting infrastructure, resources, the arts, the environment, our schools and kinders, wellness programs, health and fitness and more.

Thanks to the support of our shareholders, branch staff, company board and of course our customers, we have been able to grow to be one of the biggest sources of community funding in the local area.

It goes to show when you choose to bank locally, you choose to help your community.

COMMUNITY GRANTS. COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION. THE BETTER BIG BANK!
