Better Futures Together

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

This support formalised in 1999 with the establishment 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 $11million to more than 800 community projects, providing meaningful and grassroots changes that address vital and diverse needs in their communities. We are very committed to the projects we support and have seen first-hand the difference they make to many people.
