Community Grants – Applications Open Soon

15 March 2024

Did you know that we have supported our community with over $1.2m in grants reinvested into our local community because, as a Community Bank, we give 100% of our profits back to our shareholders and communities as donations, grants, sponsorships, and scholarships? 

Our next round of grants is opening soon for organisations wishing to secure support of up to $10,000. 

Grants are available to eligible non-profit organisations in the Pine Rivers region, for projects that benefit the wider community. Our primary focus is on families, youth, health, education, the environment and the arts. 

Community Bank Samford’s Mandy Bell outlined the program, “Our latest grant funding round is for projects and programs that will benefit from funding of up to $10,000 and is ideal for smaller community groups from across Samford, Pine Rivers, Narangba, and the surrounding areas such as Narangba and Dakabin.”

  • An active ABN. 
  • Must have a connection with the Samford or Pine Rivers region.

“As well as key eligibility criteria, we also want to form long-term partnerships and relationships with the organisations we support ton help promote their activities and the benefits they have from receiving a grant,”  says Mandy.
