Building a better, brighter future, together

Being an active supporter of the communities that we call home is a serious commitment for IMB Bank. It has been since our establishment in 1880.

This support formalised in 1999 with the creation of the IMB Bank Community Foundation. The Foundation strives to engage and connect with our communities through volunteer organisations, not-for-profit groups and charities, funding projects that help create more liveable communities and better outcomes for the people living in them. Working together, we can help the places we call home thrive.

Since 1999, we have donated over $11.5million to more than 850 community projects, providing meaningful and grassroots changes that address vital and diverse needs in their communities. We are committed to the projects we support and have seen first-hand the difference they make to many people.

We are now inviting applications for 2023, until 16 June. To find out more, check out the links or apply now. Thank you for your interest and your work in the community.
