Community Branches

A Community Branch is when Heritage comes together with local community investors to share the expenses of setting up and running a Heritage branch. This ensures the community will have ongoing access to banking services.

In return, the Community Branch distributes a share of profits back into the community to support charities, sporting clubs, parks, and other local organisations. The more the community banks at the branch, the more the community benefits.
