Community Grants Program 2023

Message from Ferntree Gully Community Bank

Knox Community Bank Group is opening its Community Grants Program 2023 on 23 February, and is taking applications from not-for-profits and community groups.

The Community Grants Program is available to customers of the Knox Community Bank Group. It is used by community-based organisations to gain additional support for projects they would not be able to fund on their own.

Returning profit to the community is our bank’s point of difference. During 2021/22, we invested a total of $293,967.75 in our community in the form of sponsorships, donations, grants and funds invested for future community projects, along with dividend payments.

Our Community Grants and Sponsorship Program supported over 49 organisations, schools and clubs with funding towards their projects and initiatives.

The grant applications were for a variety of categories and purposes and have resulted in many positive outcomes. These have included mental health support for youth, internet access for older citizens, feeding hundreds of hungry tummies, local art exhibitions, recognition of our army of local volunteers and actioning environmental issues we face locally.

Please drop in, call us on (03) 9756 0332 or email the branch for your organisation’s application form. You can also visit our website.
