Real people, real understanding
16,500 not-for-profit customers and counting

15 years ago, a group of not-for-profits came together with a plan to take control of their financial destiny. Joining with Australia’s most community focused bank, Bendigo Bank, they created Community Sector Banking. Today, we’re still Australia’s only banking service dedicated to the not-for-profit sector. Our unique model combines banking expertise with the passion and community drive of not-for-profits. As the first banking service to be certified as a B Corporation in Australia, we believe business should be a force for good.

Our vision

We have a vision to be the financial institution that strengthens not-for-profits in delivering social change and community wellbeing. We harness the understanding and capabilities of our joint venture partners to provide tailored and innovative financial solutions for not-for-profit organisations.

We believe

Business can and should be a force for good. Diversity drives success and are committed to equal opportunities for our staff. True reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples requires action. We aim to create a more just, equal and reconciled Australia. Businesses have a responsibility to protect the environment in which they operate, and we do not invest in fossil fuels.
