Community Bank®

In every community across Australia you’ll find people with big ideas. And when you give a good idea a voice, things start to snowball. They gain traction. More people listen. Experience and expertise is shared. Jobs are created. Businesses thrive. Problems are solved. Outcomes are achieved.

Our Community Bank® communities are made up of hundreds of thousands of voices you don’t usually hear from.

Listen to what they have to say. We know you’ll be inspired.

Find out how it works, why we’re so different and how your local community benefits.

Are you one of us?

In the late 1990’s a new type of banking model came onto Australia’s banking scene. Bendigo’s Community Bank® branches.

It was a brave and bold move by a regional bank in a rapidly evolving banking and finance sector. Today, 20 years later, there are 321 Community Bank® branches throughout Australia, partnering with Australia’s fifth largest retail bank.

Not only do these Community Bank® branches provide banking and financial services, they have a unique point of difference.

Numbers matter

We don’t just go around telling people we make a difference. We just make a difference. It’s as simple as that.

Sharing profits with Australian communities

$200 million in profits from our Community Bank® partnerships have been reinvested in Australian communities since 1998, including;
