Each year we invest 4% of after-tax profits into the Bank Australia Impact Fund to support projects that contribute to the mutual prosperity of people, our communities and the planet.
In 2019 we’re inviting our community customers (ie organisations that have banked with us for 1 year by 30 June 2019) to apply for funding of up to $10,000 for projects that have a positive impact in areas that are important to our customers:
- Climate change
- Environmental conservation
- Refugees and people seeking asylum
- Promoting diversity and inclusion of people and communities (including people who are LGBTQI+, live with disability, or are experiencing financial or educational exclusion)
- Family and gendered violence
- Animal welfare
We’re accepting applications from 4 March to 12 April 2019. Refer to the Application Guidelines for more information.
Community renewable energy grants
In 2019, we’re also offering grants of up to $25,000 for projects that will grow the scale and capacity of the community renewable energy sector. These grants are open to non-Bank Australia customers so we can help grow renewable energy across Australia.
We’re accepting applications from 4 March to 12 April 2019. Refer to our Application Guidelines for more information.
Our 2019 Grant Application Guidelines have everything you need to know about our customer and community renewable energy grants, including eligibility and assessment criteria and application process.
How to apply
We’ll be accepting online applications for our Customer Grants and Community Renewable Energy Grants. An online application form will be available on this page from 4 March 2019.
To complete the form we’ll need information about your organisation, project, and any staff or volunteers who’ll be working on the project.
We’ll contact shortlisted applicants in early May to ask them to provide additional supporting documentation (profit and loss report, balance sheet and statement of cash flow) to help us make final funding decisions.
