From little things, big things grow..

At Greater Bank, we're heavily invested in the communities we call home, including the Illawarra. That's why we've partnered with local charity The KidzWish  Foundation to bring The KidzWish Giving Tree to life.

This partnership ensures that we're able to make the most positive impact we can in the lives of sick, disadvantaged and disabled children on the South Coast. Greater Bank has committed $25,000 towards granting wishes in the lives of some very special kids.

The Giving Tree also allows Illawarra locals to show their support in the form of small donations for KidzWish and help them continue to provide much needed support where it's really needed. 

Each public donation of $5, $10 or $20 buys your very own personalised 'leaf' that will be attached to The Giving Tree, located at Stockland Shellharbour. The more donations we receive, the more the tree grows, as does the impact KidzWish are able to have in the Illawarra community.

Leaves can be purchased at any of Greater Bank's South Coast branches, or at the Stockland Shellharbour Help Desk.
