$2.25 million investment to help sustain jobs

Westpac Foundation will provide much needed funding to over 100 local organisations that provide employment, education and training opportunities for some of Australia’s most vulnerable. 

Alongside a community of passionate people

This National Volunteer Week, we speak to Jason Chuang, just one of 500 Westpac employees who lend their pro bono support to Westpac Foundation’s community partners. 

Regions will rebound again – with some help

Lateral thinking, which our new community grants can help fund, will strengthen regional communities’ social and economic fabric as we get to the other side of unprecedented challenges.

New grants available in partnership with FRRR

Westpac Foundation has announced a $500,000 partnership with the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR), expanding its Community Grant program in rural, regional and remote areas across Australia. Applications open 15 April – 13 May.

Sector-wide pro bono support for social enterprises

Social enterprises impacted by the COVID-19 crisis can now leverage the skills of corporate Australia to help with their current business challenges, thanks to a new collaboration between Social Impact Hub, Westpac Foundation and Social Traders.

COVID-19: supporting our community partners

Many of the social enterprises and local community organisations that we support through Westpac Foundation are experiencing hardship and uncertainty as a result of the escalating COVID-19 pandemic. We are continuing to work closely with these organisations to do all we can to best support them.
