BDCU Alliance Bank is a social enterprise that just happens to do banking. Our purpose is to make the Southern Highlands and Tablelands better tomorrow than they are today, by helping local organisations and businesses to flourish and supporting worthwhile community projects and causes. With this in mind we have created the My Community Program, which is the first time we have directly linked everyday banking to the social outcomes we want to achieve. A part of this program is our My Community Savings Account.
We give staff time off to participate in our Corporate Volunteering Program with our community partners. The team are involved in various activities such as dog walking, Meals on Wheels deliveries, reading lessons at Mittagong Public School and garden and general maintenance at Tangara School. You can find out more on our Corporate Volunteering Program here.
The Do Good Matters Program runs once a year where two nominated Community Partners (two for the Southern Highlands and two for the Tablelands) share in $12,500 a total of $25,000. The pool of funds is shared on a pro rata basis determined by the number of tokens received in support of the Community Partner's projects or objectives. Donations are then presented at our Annual General Meeting.
It's an online savings account that gets to the very heart of Do Good Banking.A My Community Savings Account allows you to nominate and support a My Community Partner from a list of registered local charities, community groups, schools and other local organisations. Find out how you can support a local community group simply by saving here.
