Commonwealth Bank Community Grant Scheme

Applications for the Commonwealth Bank Community Grant scheme for 2016 open today, 29th February 2016.

This year we will be awarding $2 million in grants of up to $10,000 each to youth-focused charities nationally, as well as continuing the Bank’s ongoing support of Midnight Basketball and Clown Doctors.

With a mission to support the health and wellbeing of Australian youth, the CBA Staff Community Fund commenced in 1917 and is Australia’s largest workplace giving program, with more than 13,000 staff donating each fortnightly pay.

Applications close at 5pm 28th March 2016.

We suggest that applicants:

  • keep the application impactful, in terms of getting across the concept of the program for which support is sought;
  • comment on the ongoing sustainability of the program beyond the initial funding; and
  • provide some comment what greater benefit the broader community would receive.
