Commonwealth Bank Gives Grants to NFPs
Monday, 28th May 2012 at 12:49 pm

The Commonwealth Bank has launched the 2012 Community Grants program which will award $2 million to eligible charities across Australia.

Not for Profit organisations that support the health and wellbeing of Australian children can apply for a grant of up to $10,000 due to the contribution of over 10,000 Commonwealth Bank staff, past and present, who are members of the Staff Community Fund.

Founder of children’s charity 4 ASD Kids and the Commonwealth Bank Community Grants ambassador, Chloe Maxwell, encourages all eligible organisations to apply for a grant.

"The Commonwealth Bank Community Grants program is a fantastic and generous initiative, which I am very proud to be a part of. My family has experienced first-hand the trials of living with a child with special needs, so I am aware of the contribution non-for profit groups make to the wider community,” Maxwell said.

“I encourage all community groups involved in improving the health and wellbeing of Aussie kids to apply for
a Commonwealth Bank Community Grant today.”

The Staff Community Fund is Australia’s longest running employee contribution program and is made up of current and retired bank staff who continue to supporting children’s charities at a grassroots level.

Since 2007, The Commonwealth Bank has given more than 450 grants to community groups across Australia, worth over $3.6 million, making the program one of the largest in the country.

To be eligible for a 2012 Community Grant, organisations must support the health and wellbeing of
Australian children, and be endorsed by the Australian Tax Office with Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status.

Applications close at 5.00pm AEST on Friday, 29 June 2012. More information about applying for a grant can be found here.
