1. How is money raised by Commonwealth Bank’s employee giving program?

More than 13,000 Commonwealth Bank employees donate a nominated amount every fortnight from their pay packets.

2. How can I apply to join the program?

In order to join the employee giving program, you have to be a Commonwealth Bank employee.

4. If I work for a youth organisation, how can I apply for a grant?

The application period for community grants is currently closed.

The 220 youth organisations selected to receive grants this year will also receive support in 2018 and 2019, as our grants are donated on a three-year basis. For example, the recipient of our National Grant, the Clown Doctors, will receive donations of $400,000 in 2017, 2018 and 2019 ($1.2 million in total)

Applications for the next round of grants will open in late 2019.

5. Why are grants allocated on a three-year basis as opposed to annually?

By committing to fund our grants for three years, we believe we can help community organisations plan for the longer term, allowing them to deliver more services and support for young Australians.
