Do Good Annual 2020

15 April 2021 |Feature
Over the past five years we've invested our time, energy and profit in to our communities. Our social impact which includes our social impact loans program, equates to more than $8M.

Community is central to our purpose and despite the challenges we've all faced over the last year we have not wavered in our commitment.

The past 18 months have challenged us all, we have learned a lot about each other and have realised a stronger sense of community than ever before. 

Throughout this time our commitment has not waivered. Despite COVID-19 restrictions we still managed to volunteer 8,447 hours to support those in need. We provided immediate financial relief to individuals, and partnered with 147 charities, not-for-profits and community organisations.

We supported the disadvantaged, migrants and people experiencing domestic violence, homelessness, disability and severe illness. We've supported a virtual crowd-funding event to enable community organisations to deliver their community programs. And as social enterprises, we continued to support small businesses and other social enterprises to stay in business or realise their goals.

Our community investment over the last five years which includes the benefits that people who bank with us enjoy, community programs, micro-financing, fundraising, donations, sponsorship, environmental initiatives and volunteering is over $3M. 

That said, we couldn't have achieved any of this without the support of our members, the people that choose to bank with us so they can be part of a more equitable society and part of positive social change. 

Thank you. We are so very happy to share this year's Do Good Annual.
