Community Sector Banking, Australia’s banking specialist for not‐for‐profits, is proud to announce the recipients of their inaugural Social Investment Grants Program.

Six not‐for‐profit organisations across the country have been awarded grants between $5,000 and $10,000, with a total grant pool of $50,000 to deliver programs improving financial inclusion for disadvantaged people and their communities.

“This is an exciting step for Community Sector Banking, with our first ever grant that is funded by our customers and directly gives back to the communities our not‐for‐profit customers strive to assist,” said Community Sector Banking CEO & Managing Director, Greg Peel.

“Financial literacy is such an important life skill that is often overlooked. Our aim with these grants is to help not‐for‐profits create opportunities for marginalised people, empowering them with the knowledge and skills of financial management. And in turn, assisting families and communities to prosper.”
