Community Bank Samford & Brendale

Built by the community, for the community

Amount Given Back to the Local Community Since 2002

Banking Done Differently

We are a community bank – built by the community for our local community.

We deliver the full range of traditional banking services, but unlike traditional banks, up to 80% of all profits are returned to our local community.

How does community banking work?

The Pine Rivers Community Finance Ltd (PRCF) owns and operates the Community Bank Samford and Brendale (part of Bendigo Bank).

Our Samford and Brendale Community Banks offer the full range of Bendigo Bank products and services.

Our banking team are local, caring and committed to our local community and the growth of local businesses.

Community banking is based on a ‘profit-with-purpose’ model, which means a portion of our profits are returned directly to the community that has generated them.

We do this by providing grants and sponsorships to schools, community groups, sporting clubs and not for profits for all those little projects that make living and working in our community the best place to be.

From empowering people with a disability to realise a business dream to helping save young drivers’ lives,  Community Bank Samford and Brendale, part of Bendigo Bank, makes a big impact.


Every time you bank with the Community Bank Samford and Brendale a share of the profits that are generated by award-winning financial products and services go directly back to your community.


These profits go into better sporting facilities, community safety initiatives, local employment, or health initiatives.

Everyone Benefits

You benefit through competitive rates and banking. Our community benefits through better resources and support.
