Community Grants Recipients Announced
Wednesday, 28th August 2013 at 10:44 am

More than 200 community organisations that support the health and wellbeing of Australian youth have been awarded individual grants of up to $10,000, as part of the 2013 Commonwealth Bank Community Grants program.

The annual Community Grants program is funded by staff donations to the Commonwealth Bank Staff Community Fund and is matched dollar-for-dollar by the Group.

Since inception the Community Grants program has awarded more than 700 grants, giving more than $5.6 million to help community organisations that support Australian youth.

This year, grants will be awarded in Queensland (36), New South Wales (90), Australian Capital Territory (9), Victoria (46), South Australia (11), Western Australia (20), Northern Territory (7) and Tasmania (16).

“The Commonwealth Bank Staff Community Fund is Australia’s longest running workplace giving program and through our 2013 Community Grants program we continue to support the wellbeing of communities in which we operate,” Commonwealth Bank Staff Community Fund Chair, David Cohen said.

Louise Walsh, Chief Executive Officer, Philanthropy Australia, believes community grants programs are vital in assisting grassroots charity organisations.

“Programs like the Commonwealth Bank’s Community Grants have an important and positive impact on communities across Australia. The Commonwealth Bank can be proud of the contribution it makes through community grants to hundreds of organisations each year,” Walsh said.
