The 2021 Heritage Bank Charitable Foundation grants will open on Wednesday 16 June.

We are thrilled to announce that we’ll be launching the Charitable Foundation’s second round of grants on Wednesday 16 June 2021 – with a number of exciting new changes this year that will ensure the grants have even more impact in our community.

The total amount to be given out in grants will stay the same at $90,000, as will the focus areas and the eligibility criteria will also remain the same.  

This year, however, we will have three different levels of grants. 

  1. The Our Shout Workplace Giving Grant - 1 x $25,000 grant
  2. Growing Stronger Communities Grants - 4 x $15,000 grants
  3. Community Champion Donations – 50 x $100 donations

We’re introducing a special new $5,000 funding pool this year that will enable the Foundation to chip in a $100 donation when a Heritage staff member donates at least $100 to an eligible charity of their choice. That means the Foundation will be able to make 50 x $100 donations to causes that Heritage Bank employees actively fundraise for.


Our Heritage Bank Charitable Foundation Grant recipients needed to meet the following criteria.

  • Be a non-profit with deductible gift recipient (DGR) status.
  • Be able to show evidence of an effective existing program supporting one or more of the following areas:
     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. 
  • Be clearly able to demonstrate the number of people who will be positively impacted by provision of the grant.
  • Have an annual income for 2012 (based on their latest audited report) of under $10 million.
  • Obtain less than 70% of their annual income from government sources.

Grant applications open 16 June 2021.
