During these unprecedented times, we are offering Special Grants to community organisations requiring support. These Grants are available to local organisations to facilitate their valuable activities in building and strengthening our community. These grants are in addition to the regular community investment program.
During COVID-19 our Sponsorship program continues. Sponsorship provides the Community Bank with the opportunity to engage with members and supporters to promote the benefits of community banking. These sponsorship and grants are only made possible by the profit generated from banking services provided at our four branches. We accept sponsorship applications from local organisations and clubs in the Canterbury, Ashburton, Surrey Hills and Balwyn areas. We focus on organisations that aim to improve community links and provide services that benefit the local community. We have supported more than 290 groups and organisations and have given back more than $5.5 million through our Community Investment Program.
