Auswide Bank began as a regional building society and today, our roots remain firmly planted in local communities and their people.

Helping people, organisations and community groups achieve their goals is why we do what we do. That's why we support many local activities, organisations, projects and events with in-kind support and sponsorship through 'Our Community' Grants Scheme.

The projects we have supported to date span across many community, cultural and sporting interests including Queensland Young Achievers Awards, Northern District Rugby League, Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal and All Ability Balls across Queensland, just to name a few.

The 'Auswide Bank Community' Grants Scheme is available to eligible organisations and projects big or small. We provide grant funding for charitable or benevolent purposes which must be for a non-for-profit organisation or local government authority.

Grants are available for a range of projects including community services, celebrations, buildings, public spaces, facilities and events.

We also provide in-kind support for various events and projects. In-kind support can take many forms including signage, marquee hire, or even having our very own Ziggy the Piggy attend your event!
