community engagement

Community Engagement is about making a real difference in the community.

It’s not just about being a good corporate citizen, it’s about our colleagues and their families who also get behind these opportunities by donating their free time to help out in whatever way is needed.

Supporting the community through technology

We often donate Bankwest’s previously loved IT hardware to charities, community organisations and schools chosen by colleagues. This helps schools to advance student learning and organisations to connect with their communities and be more productive.

Supporting community events

As part of our ongoing commitment to strengthen community relationships, we support community organisations by providing venue and catering assistance. Our corporate headquarters, Bankwest Place, is in the heart of the Perth CBD and offers state of the art facilities.

Supporting charity fundraising

Our Perth CBD office offers a prime location for charitable organisations wanting a home base to co-ordinate their volunteer workforce during city street appeals. With easy to access rooms, 24 hour security and the Bankwest Place Store only steps away Bankwest is happy to help where we can.


Partnership with UNICEF

Your leftover foreign currency can positively impact children around the world. That’s why we’re partnering with UNICEF Australia to collect change for their Coins for Kids program.


Our customers can turn their loose change into positive change:

  • $1.00 provides a child with essential school materials like pencils and paper
  • $4.60 buys exercise books for 10 children
  • $5.50 buys a soccer or basketball for kids to play in the schoolyard

Visit your nearest Bankwest store to donate your leftover change today.
