Financial literacy grants
From 2004 to 2008, the Commonwealth Bank Foundation invested more than $1.75 million in Financial Literacy Grants to Australian secondary schools.
These grants helped schools implement an education program that developed studentsâ financial literacy awareness, understanding and skill. The overall aim was to provide young Australians with the building blocks of money management skills that would last throughout their lives.
Each year, the Foundation awarded 100 grants of $3,500 each to schools that put forward effective, innovative and relevant financial literacy education programs.
The Financial Literacy Grants have been replaced by the award-winning StartSmart program, which is delivered to primary and secondary school students around Australia.
