At Community Sector Banking we are here for one reason - we help not-for-profits make a difference in their community.
more than a banking service
We are proudly Australia's specialist in not-for-profit banking; we remain passionate about social change and finding real community solutions.
Not-for-profit organisations have unique needs not always met by traditional banking products, and goals not driven by the bottom line.
owned by the community
Community Sector Banking formed as a 50:50 joint venture between shareholders Bendigo Bank and the Community 21 consortium of not-for-profit organisations including Oxfam, Scope and Yfoundations. Bringing together the best of business and the not-for-profit sector.
Our specialised knowledge of the sector and our customers set us apart from other financial institutions. We understand our customers' funding cycles and the way their boards govern their decisions.
The true measure of our success is how people in the community benefit from the services offered by our customers. Because we understand that some things should be valued in terms other than money, we seek out projects that some banks ignore or deem less important.
We also continue to invest in research and development; building financial solutions for social impact.
