The Heritage Bank Charitable Foundation aims to improve community wellbeing and life outcomes for people who need it most. The Foundation will distribute funds to selected eligible registered charitable organisations with an annual grants program. Grants will contribute funding to organisations whose initiatives help improve the livelihood of people, with a particular focus on disadvantaged and at-risk families, young people, and elderly people. Grants will go towards projects which address areas of education, culture, health, social, and financial wellbeing.
When they open, applications will be available to registered charitable organisations Australia-wide. However, extra weight will be given to causes which benefit a greater number of Heritage customers.Consideration will also be given to the applicants alignment with the principles of Heritage Bank and the Foundation, including being passionate about helping people.
We invite you to read through the Foundation’s specific grant criteria and Frequently Asked Questions below. Check back later in the year for more information on grant timing.

However if you'd like to switch your banking to Heritage Bank, we have friendly staff ready to help you through the process. Heritage Bank is a customer-owned bank driven by fulfilling its customers’ needs rather than distributing profits to shareholders. It has a passionate desire to be a positive member of the community, as is evident with its support of this Foundation.
