How you can help
Banking with Bendigo Bank and tagging your account with AWCC provides a very simple way for you to support local Albury Wodonga and regional organisations.
And you don’t have to make a financial contribution of your own as there are no additional fees associated with tagging your Bendigo Bank account.
Bendigo Bank origins started with focusing on their local community and that hasn’t changed.
It’s as easy as 1,2,3…
- Choose Bendigo Bank Albury, Lavington or Wodonga as your local bank
- Nominate AWCC as your community beneficiary (by tagging your accounts)
- AWCC receives a commission payment from the Bendigo Bank and those commissions total the value of the Grants AWCC is then able to offer
The more new and existing accounts that are tagged,the more funds are donated by Bendigo Bank.
If you don’t bank with Bendigo Bank, it’s as simple as switching your bank accounts across and asking for them to be tagged to AWCC.
If you already bank with Bendigo Bank, but don’t have your bank accounts tagged, just ask your local branch to tag your accounts to AWCC.
Everyone has banking so why not give Bendigo Bank a try and give back to your community.
Drop into your local Bendigo Bank branch and speak to their friendly staff about linking your business or personal accounts to support AWCC.
Commissions are paid as part of Bendigo Bank’s community engagement budget and are made at no cost to the customer. There is no change to the way customer accounts operate, and all the funds raised go towards the AWCC local Grants.
Where do funds go?
Approved Grants are awarded to local organisations only.
Albury Wodonga Connected Communities has its own board of directors. The Board is made up of local community representatives who make the decisions on how the money is allocated.
Albury Wodonga Connected Communities holds two Grant applications per year. The Grants are evaluated by the Albury Wodonga Connected Communities grants sub-committee against specific criteria.
