Who do we support?

The Heritage Bank Charitable Foundation has been established as a Public Ancillary Fund. As a result, the Foundation can only 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:

  • 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. 

These three key areas allow us to have a wide ranging reach, whilst providing strong direction for our focus.

Heritage Bank established the Heritage Bank Charitable Foundation in 2018 with initial seed funding of $2 million. Heritage will continue to make additional contributions in future 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.
