Our first Community at Heart Appeal
At the Heritage Bank Charitable Foundation, we want to give you a chance to be a part of something bigger, where what you do has a real impact on the communities around us. We invite you to join us in helping to make a real difference in people’s lives by making a donation to support our vision:
Growing stronger communities, together.
When you make a tax deductible donation to us, you’ll be providing so much more than money. You'll become part of the Heritage Bank Charitable Foundation team, a collaborative effort focused on making a positive difference to the lives of individuals and their families.
Our team has the strength to become a leading force for good in Australia.
Together we will ensure your assistance is supported by a thorough grant selection process. The eligible charities we support will be able to demonstrate outcomes and projected impacts to ensure our grants maximise the benefits they deliver.
The Heritage Bank Charitable Foundation is a Public Ancillary Fund and can provide grants to registered charitable organisations that have deductible gift recipient (DGR) status. After an extensive review process of our membership, staff, societal issues and the location of our network, the Foundation Board has elected to focus on:
These three key areas allow us to have a wide ranging reach, whilst providing strong direction for our focus.
We want to make it easy for you to support the Foundation and donations can be made in a number of ways. Donations to the Foundation are fully tax deductible. Plus, Heritage Bank funds all operational costs of the Foundation, ensuring your donations are 100% used to helping those in need, now and into the future.

Take the next step with your charitable giving by starting a Heritage Bank Charitable Foundation “Sub-Fund”.
By way of a tax deductible donation, you establish a Sub-Fund within the Heritage Bank Charitable Foundation. Your Sub-Fund is then invested as part of the entire fund, with the aim of producing income for annual donations to eligible charities of your request.
Heritage Bank established the Heritage Bank Charitable Foundation in 2018 with initial seed funding of $2 million. Heritage donated an additional $1 million in 2021 to enhance the Foundation’s ability to support the important work of the registered charitable organisations who receive grants.
Heritage staff and customers have jumped right behind the Foundation, with their generous donations helping the great work being done in our communities. Members of the business community are also encouraged to become involved by getting in touch with a Foundation Representative.
