UBank Grants Programme

2019 Grants Program

  • $0 in Grants
  • $0 in Co-donations and growing

Each year we give away $50,000 in Grants to Australian grassroots charities, community groups and not-for-profits.  It’s our way of giving back to the community.

If there’s a charity you love, we invite you to vote for them to share in our next grants round.  You can also donate to your favourite charity to give them extra votes.  Generous Australians like you have already donated more than $300,000 to their favourite Charities.  Together we’re making a difference to grassroots charities around Australia.

We're helping Charities like these
