How we support the community

At Community Bank Lindfield & Districts, our commitment to the community extends beyond banking transactions. We take pride in actively contributing to the well-being and vibrancy of our local area through various initiatives and programs. Here’s a glimpse into how we support and uplift our community:

Community Group Partnerships

We believe in the strength of collaboration. Through our Community Group Partnerships, we forge lasting relationships with local organisations, schools and clubs.

Turramurra High School ‘Inside Out Project’ (2014/2015)

Partnering with Turramurra High School on the ‘Inside Out Project’, we contributed to the creation of an innovative outdoor learning environment. We collaborated with the Ku-ring-gai Men’s Shed, Turramurra Rotary Club and the Turramurra Lookout Community Garden to assist with the build and provided 50% of the seed costs for the design and survey. An interest-free loan to the P&C Association of $75,000 enabled the school to complete the build in a single year; and we raised $20,500 through our paver fundraiser.

Ku-ring-gai Edition of Monopoly Project (2018/2019)

In a collaborative effort with our community, we launched the Ku-ring-gai Edition of Monopoly, raising over $84,000 with the sale of 2000 games. The bulk of the proceeds were distributed among four major beneficiaries: St Lucy’s School, Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Women’s Shelter, Lifeline Harbour to Hawkesbury, and KYDS Youth Development Service. 11 local charitable organisations also received support from this initiative.

Hero HQ Campaign for Ku-ring-gai SES and RFS (2012/2013)

The Hero HQ campaign raised funds to fit out the new headquarters for the Ku-ring-gai SES and RFS. KFSL donated $100,000 and we raised a further $130,000 together with the community. This endeavour ensured that our local emergency services have the resources they need to keep our community safe.

Turramurra Community Lookout Garden (2010)

As one of the foundation sponsors of the Turramurra Community Lookout Garden, we continue to support this community space that brings people together.

Community Events

Celebrating community spirit is at the heart of what we do. Community Bank Lindfield & Districts sponsors, actively participates in, and produces various community events throughout the year. From local charity fun runs, events and celebrations to our very own Community Pitch event, we’re there to make these moments successful and memorable for everyone.

Community Grant Program 

Through our Community Grant Program, we have provided over $385,000 in grants to local community groups, charities and not-for-profit organisations. This program has supported many community organisations since our inception in 2003.

Staff and Directors Grants Program

Our staff members are not just employees; they are community advocates. Through the Staff and Directors Grants Program, twice a year we empower our team to nominate and support projects close to their hearts.

Loyalty Donation Program 

Community support is a collective effort and we believe in rewarding those who contribute. Our Loyalty Donation Program incentivises community members to refer others to Community Bank Lindfield & Districts by providing a $1,000 donation to the local community organisation they are associated with, when a new home or investment loan is drawn down.
