The Heritage Bank Charitable Foundation joined forces with Heritage Bank, our members, and staff, to support communities impacted by the devastating flooding across southern Queensland and New South Wales.
We are delighted to announce that we’ve been able to donate more than $120,000 to the GIVIT Storm and Flooding Appeal.
We’re so proud of the Heritage community coming together to help those in need.
Heritage Bank kick-started the fund-raising with a $100,000 donation. The Heritage Bank Charitable Foundation chipped in a further $5,000. We then opened up donations to Heritage members and staff, who contributed a further $15,000.
The $120,000 raised is a true indication of the generosity and thoughtfulness of everyone in the Heritage community.
GIVIT purchases items and services as requested by frontline charities, community groups and Councils. The initial response phase focuses predominantly on providing fuel, grocery and clothing vouchers – to meet the immediate need of people who have lost everything.
As the damage is assessed and recovery begins, spending moves to furniture, electrical goods, flooring and furnishings. For properties where damage is severe, and recovery is more complex, funds will be used to purchase building materials and trade services.
Thank you for your support.
The Heritage Bank Charitable Foundation was created in 2018 to build upon the amazing community support Heritage Bank has always provided. The Foundation is a Public Ancillary Fund established for the purpose of making distributions to organisations who are charities registered as deductible gift recipients (DGRs). This means the Foundation is also a registered charity and all donations over $2 are tax-deductible in Australia.
