20 Million Reasons to Celebrate!

WA Bendigo Bank committed to building strong communities

Directors and staff from 46 Bendigo Bank branches across WA recently gathered in Perth on 4 & 5 May for the annual state Community Bank® Conference. There were several reasons to celebrate – but perhaps none more so than the $20 million milestone reached in community contributions to benefit organisations and special projects throughout WA.

North Perth Community Bank® Branch has contributed to this total by donating more than $2.5 million to local organisations and projects, since it was established in March, 2001. Community Bank® Chair, Mr. Nic Catania, said the branch was dedicated to supporting a thriving North Perth community.

“We believe successful customers and communities create a successful bank – in that order. We think about what we can do beyond banking to help our customers and the communities they live in. Every time a customer banks with one of our locally owned branches, a percentage of revenue goes to benefit the local area.”

Funding granted by North Perth Community Bank® Branch has gone towards many initiatives including:

Multicultural Services WA – Funding the Wellness Centre for the aged

Vincent Men’s Shed – funded the acquisition of new equipment

Telethon Type 1 Diabetes Family Centre – New vehicle funding to visit children with diabetes

Rotary Club North Perth – helping to fund the annual Hyde Park fair

“With the support of the North Perth community, we can continue to grow our business and share the inspiring success stories that underscore the true value to all those connected with this unique banking model. If people are after ideas about the types of projects that may qualify for funding, the full list of projects can be found in the Community Section of our website”
