Help for the Hunter Region

26 October 2020 |Community
To support its local community NOVA Alliance Bank is giving $25,000 to a range of charities.
NOVA Alliance Bank CEO, David Franklin, said that the Board with the support of staff and members agreed to expand the grant program.
“There is no doubt that the Covid19 pandemic has thrown many challenges to our community, particularly in the not-for-profit sector. This year we decided to increase our support and provide five organisations within our community with a grant. Each grant provides additional financial support to projects so that they can operate within their communities."
