Commonwealth Bank Centenary Grant

Commonwealth Bank Centenary Grant

16 May 2018

In celebration of a 100-year legacy of giving, Commonwealth Bank employees are giving $10 million to community organisations, with 1,000 Centenary Grants valued at $10,000 being distributed. 

Abacus Learning Centre have received a Centenary Grant, with Hastings branch and employees having nominated it in recognition of the much needed services it provides to the local community. 

The inspiring and far reaching impact of the work undertaken by the learning centre was a crucial factor in it receiving the grant. 

“We’re thrilled to be able to support organisations like Abacus Learning Centre in the important work they do for our local community,” says Commonwealth Bank Hastings branch manager Naomi Annear. 

“It’s especially meaningful that we are able to celebrate 100 years of employee giving, by nominating an organisation to receive a Centenary Grant in our local community.”

Right across Australia, Commonwealth Bank employees will be supporting local organisations that benefit youth wellbeing, access to education, and cancer research and awareness. 

In total, 1,000 community organisations across the country will receive a Centenary Grant from Commonwealth Bank. Each of the 1,000 community organisations will be selected by Commonwealth Bank employees from right across Australia.
