What are for- purpose and not-for-profit or organisations?

A not-for-profit is an organisation like a charity that exists for their purpose alone and not to make profit. Any money they make is put back into the organisation to keep doing what they do. A for-purpose organisation is similar but they may make some profit – social enterprises for example.

Why we do not-for-profit finance

Not-for-profit and for-purpose organisations exist for a reason – they’re here to help. So we help them. People and businesses in this sector can do everything from campaign on climate, support people with a disability, provide employment to young people or build sustainable, climate-friendly homes.

Bank Australia's policy

This matters to us because, through these organisations, we’re able to help support those having a  positive impact for people and the planet.
