The IMB Bank Community Foundation calls on all community champions and change-makers to apply for the 2023 grant funding opportunities. 

Not-for-profit groups that need financial help to support their community are encouraged to apply. 

Funding is available for initiatives that respond to a broad range of community issues and opportunities.  

Over the past 23 years, the Foundation has funded projects making a difference in many sectors including education, disability, environment, indigenous, wellbeing support for men and women, programs for older and young Australians, and many more. 

“Not-for-profit community groups and support services are always in high demand. With the cost of living increasing and pressure on people’s availability to volunteer their time, grassroots community organisations are facing challenges,” said Robert Ryan, IMB Bank Chief Executive.  

Since 1999 the IMB Bank Community Foundation has donated over $11.5m to more than 850 grassroots projects across NSW, ACT and Melbourne. In 2023, there is $700,000 in grant funding available. 

Ryan highlighted that not-for-profit and volunteer organisations are the backbone of local communities and need financial support to help Australians in their time of need. 

“Throughout the pandemic, natural disasters and everyday living pressures, charitable organisations are always there to help those who need a helping hand.” 

IMB Bank Community Foundation funding applications for 2023 open on 1 May. Community groups can visit to apply. 

The Foundation welcomes applications that support people and communities in IMB’s key markets of Greater Sydney, the Illawarra, Hunter, South Coast, Southern Highlands, the ACT and Melbourne. 

“The Foundation is again calling on those people and not-for-profit groups supporting their community, to apply for funding. Applications can be made easily online and close on 16 June,” added Ryan. 

IMB Bank Community Foundation funding applications for 2023 open on 1 May. Not-for-profit community organisations should visit to apply. Applications close Friday 16 June 2023.
