The organisations have been awarded a 2016 Community Grant for their work to support the health and wellbeing of Australian youth.
Each Community Grant is funded by Commonwealth Bank staff through the Bank’s workplace giving program, the Staff Community Fund.
Kylie Macfarlane, General Manager Corporate Responsibility, Commonwealth Bank, said: “It is a great source of pride for our staff and the Commonwealth Bank to support so many worthy programs through these grants.
“We are grateful for the generosity of more than 13,000 current and retired staff who donate to the Staff Community Fund to make this possible.”
Since the Commonwealth Bank Community Grants initiative launched in 2007, $13.7 million in grants have been awarded to more than 1600 youth-focused organisations, supporting a range of programs across education, health and social inclusion.
The Staff Community Fund is one of Australia’s longest workplace giving programs with staff contributing a nominal amount from their salary towards the fund, which is matched dollar for dollar by the Bank.
To be eligible for a Commonwealth Bank Community Grant, organisations must support the health and wellbeing of Australians up to 21 years of age.
