“In addition to supporting 1.5 million CommBank customers directly impacted by the floods, we also understand the important role local organisations play as communities recover. That’s why we launched the CommBank Flood Relief Fund and are providing $2 million to support customers and local community organisations as they rebuild.
“Flood-impacted community organisations have been able to access up to $10,000 in CommBank grant funding to assist them with clean-up, rebuild and recovery and we have been focused on getting this money to them as quickly as possible,” said Ms Smith.
The Indigenous Futures Foundation is one of the community groups in NSW that have received a donation from CommBank. Operating out of Tweed Heads South in NSW, the non-profit provides communities in the Northern NSW region and surrounding areas with access to free and nutritious meals. Additional organisations in NSW that will benefit from CBA’s Flood Relief Funding include Byron Bay Wildlife Hospital, Men’s Mental Health Australia Incorporated, and ReForest Now.
In Queensland, the Kia Ora & Districts Pony Club is one of the community groups to receive a donation from CommBank. Operating out of the small township of Kia Ora, east of Gympie, the non-profit provides horse riding classes to the local community. Additional organisations in Queensland that will benefit from CBA’s Flood Relief Funding include Fishers of Men, Drought Angels, and We Care 2.
