Bendigo Community Bank streamlines sponsorship funding

Geographe Bay Community Enterprises Limited, Busselton and Dunsborough are very proud to now offer eligible local community groups and not for profit organisations two opportunities a year to apply for funding as part of our Community Sponsorship Program.

As part of our commitment to contribute to the success, sustainability and resilience of our local community as well as growing our business through the local Branches of Bendigo Bank, those groups that choose to support their local branch of Bendigo Bank can apply for sponsorship.

Chairperson Jess O'Malley said: "This will streamline the process to not only make the role of assessments easier for the Marketing Committee, but will afford community groups a degree of certainty plus adequate time to prepare their applications. "

The Marketing sub-committee capably chaired by Merri-Lea Lawrence, will assess all round one applications by the end of May and successful applications will be announced in early June.

All details relating to sponsorship are on our website with extra process updates on Facebook.

Across Australia, Bendigo Community Bank distribute back $166.4million dollars annually and in Western Australia alone $19.47million dollars goes back into local communities to sponsor local events and organisations.

Obviously this doesn't happen without a strong customer base and anybody can either take their existing business or open a new account with their local Bendigo branch in Busselton or Dunsborough.
