To help, we’re donating $2 million, including $1.75 million as part of a national fundraising appeal with the Australian Red Cross.
The remaining $250,000 will go to Rural Aid's ‘Buy a Bale’ program which supports the urgent need for livestock feed.
If you’d like to lend a hand, all our branches are accepting donations with funds going straight to the farmers and communities who need it most. To donate, head to your local branch or make a direct deposit to:

Customers in financial difficulty caused by the drought, will not have their default interest rates applied to their business term debt. This will help provide peace of mind and extra flexibility to help get their businesses back on track.
The package also includes a confidential telephone counselling service to support customers and their families going through the drought.
