Community

Australia’s banks value the communities in which they find themselves and are committed to engaging with their stakeholders – whether that be their customers, employees, suppliers, community partners, the broader community or the environment.

For pensioners, students, people with a disability or those financially disadvantaged, there are substantial fee discounts and exemptions provided by most banks.

Many banks assist their customers and the broader community by providing financial education, financial literacy and financial inclusion programs and activities. For more information on banks’ financial literacy programs, click here.

Banks make a difference in our community in many ways. It could be supporting a helicopter which helps save lives, volunteering to help people in their suburb, actively helping raise money for medical research, developing programs to help our young people in sport, business and to improve life skills, sponsoring sporting clubs and associations, or providing grants and funding of education and scholarship opportunities.
