Regional Australia Bank hands out donations in Community Partnership Program

The city celebrated in style on Thursday night, as Regional Australia Bank awarded local groups a grand total of $111,676.74 at the Armidale City Bowling Club.

All of this money will be poured back into the local clubs, businesses and organisations who do such a fantastic job of giving back to the Armidale community.

As Phil Williams, Armidale’s Senior Branch Operations Manager, Regional Australia Bank explains, “we’re passionate about giving back to our community and empowering customers to support local community groups they feel strongly about because like Seb Terry, we realise that helping people it provides the best reward.”

The community Partnership Program allows new bank customers to open a transaction account and at the same time pledge their support for a group or organization close to their heart.

Regional Australia Bank then calculates the average annual balance of all supporters’ accounts and donates one per cent of the total to the cause on the customers’ behalf – all without costing them a cent.

With more and more people getting on board, the Community Partnership Program has continued to grow at over 30 per cent per year – and provides invaluable donations to various local grass roots clubs and community groups.

“Regional Australia Bank is proud to continue delivering the Community Support Program in 2018, enabling it to continue enhancing the quality of life and a strong sense of community for the regions it serves.

“Our customer owned structure means that not only do our clientele benefit from fairer fees, competitive interest rates and the local expertise, they also know they’re benefiting Regional Australia by helping it prosper and thrive.”
