We’re for Australian communities. Westpac Foundation is our most established social giving program.
We’ve been a part of this community for 200 years, and we want to continue backing the people who need it most, far into the future.

Community Grants provide:

  • $2 million of funding to 200 community organisations
  • $10,000 to local community organisations delivering educational opportunities, employment pathways or improving the quality of life for people in need.

Community Grants support:

  • Indigenous Australians
  • Refugees & asylum seekers
  • Women at risk
  • Youth at risk
  • People who are homeless or at risk of homelessness
  • People who've experienced family or domestic violence
  • People living with a disability (including carers)
  • People living with a mental health issue (including carers)

Community Grants include:

  • non-financial support via our ‘More than Money’ program helping to maximise the social impact and sustainability of our grantees.

Our More than Money program leverages Westpac Group employees’ skills, resources and networks to help your organisation create greater social impact.

We will seek to match all 200 Community Grant recipients with a Westpac Group employee to act as your Westpac Ambassador, helping identify your needs and tailor our non-financial support. 

All 200 Community Grants recipients will be recognised in local media following the announcement of our grant recipients in September.

All 200 Community Grants recipients will have access to the 200 Community Grants program logo to proudly display in their own communications and websites.
