Australia’s banks value the communities in which they find themselves and are committed to engaging with their stakeholders – whether that be their customers, employees, suppliers, community partners, the broader community or the environment.
For those Australians who are financially disadvantaged, pensioners, students, people with a disability, there are substantial fee discounts and exemptions provided by most banks.
Many banks assist their customers and the broader community by providing financial education, financial literacy and financial inclusion programs and activities. For more information on banks’ financial literacy programs, click here.
Banks also make a difference in our community, whether it is by supporting a helicopter which helps save lives, volunteering to help people in their suburb, actively helping raise money for medical research, development of programs to help our young people in sport, business and improve life skills, sponsorship of sporting clubs and associations, not to mention grants and funding of education and scholarship opportunities.
