Supporting the Community
Supporting Community and Industry
As a dedicated agribusiness bank and a member of recognised community supporter, the Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Group, involvement with rural and regional communities and the agribusiness sector is integral to our operations.
We are pleased to support the Australian agribusiness community through a countrywide program of community involvement activities.
These activities include support for local causes and communities and collaboration with industry organisations through our regional banking partners, including the Bendigo and Community Bank network and Elders Rural Services. Through this approach, we know that local organisations and communities directly benefit from our sponsorship and community involvement activities.
Providing support at this level through our network means there are too many local causes, industry and community groups, regional shows and events to list, but we encourage you to keep an eye out for us in your local community.
Recognising our role in rural and regional Australia and to bring our people closer to the community, our employees make voluntary monthly contributions to a nominated local community group or cause. Whatever is raised via these contributions is matched dollar-for-dollar by Rural Bank. Some examples of the causes supported in this way include:
- Stand Like Stone Foundation, Mount Gambier
- SIDS and Kids
- Cancer Council SA
- Bathurst Tucker Van
- Meals on Wheels
- Riding for the Disabled
- Hutt Street Centre
At an industry level, Rural Bank has been pleased to support and participate with the following:
