Do you know of a school, sporting or community group or charity in your area that could use a funding boost?
Nominate them now for a chance to share in $3000 as part of Greater Bank’s newly expanded #GreaterCentralWest community funding program.
Greater Bank’s community funding program has already provided $500,000 to more than 350 community groups across regional NSW since September 2016. That support is now expanding to assist organisations in the Central West region.
Each month from August, Greater Bank is giving community groups based in Bathurst, Orange and Dubbo the opportunity to share in $3,000 by nominating to be part of the program.
Greater Bank will select three organisations each month that the community then vote on, with the winner receiving $2000 and the runners-up each taking away $500.
Greater Bank’s Chief Executive Officer, Scott Morgan said the program is an extension of the customer-owned bank’s commitment to supporting the Central West region.
“It is more important than ever to support the communities that support us, which is why we are proud to expand our community funding program into the Central West, a region we have been part of since 1998,”
Scott Morgan, Greater Bank CEO.
“We understand the challenges this region has faced over the past few years, from droughts to COVID-19, which has impacted many individuals and organisations throughout the community.
“#GreaterCentralWest will not only generate hope but positive action for community groups who can use this funding to keep the doors open, innovate the way they deliver their programs or even expand their services to support a new or specific need in the community.
“Since 2016, our community funding programs have invested almost $500,000 to a diverse range of groups across the state, many of whom struggle for funding.
“We’ve seen first-hand the positive impact this funding has had on the groups we have funded and the communities they support, which is why we’re excited to now launch the #GreaterCentralWest program and help make a difference to community groups in this region.”
You can nominate a community group or charity via our website - greater.com.au/greatercentralwest – simply by telling us in 100 words or less how they are helping to improve the lives of locals. We will then select three organisations each month to be included in the public vote to determine who should receive the funds.
