Heritage Bank Charitable Foundation


The Heritage Bank Charitable Foundation was created to continue building upon the amazing community support Heritage Bank has always provided.

We are passionate about supporting high quality programs that create long lasting positive impacts by reaching people in need in the communities we serve.

The Foundation does this by giving grants to eligible not-for-profit organisations. After an extensive review process of our membership, staff, societal issues and the location of our network, the Foundation has elected to focus on:

  • Positive educational and alternative pathways to help at-risk children and teenagers;
  • Health care services for vulnerable Australians and their families; and
  • Support for the economic and social wellbeing of people in regional, rural and remote communities, including in times of natural disasters.
Heritage Bank funds all operational costs of the Foundation, ensuring all donations received and investment income generated is applied to helping those in need, now and into the future.

How are we going to make a difference?

With your support we are going to leverage off the goodwill Heritage Bank has created since 1875.

When you make a donation to the Heritage Bank Charitable Foundation, you’ll be providing so much more than just a financial contribution. We don’t feel the best approach to support the community is to “just write a cheque”.

Instead, we’ll take a holistic approach. The charities we assist will have the collaborative backing of our staff, members and business partners. Our goal is to harness the collective strength of the Heritage community to make a positive difference to the lives of individuals and their families.

It is also critical to have a robust selection process. We owe it to our donors to ensure we do justice to their generosity by have the greatest impact possible.

Established with a seed donation of $2 million from Heritage Bank, we now seek to harness the goodwill and generosity of people via donations so that the Foundation can grow to benefit our community for a lifetime.
