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.

About UBank – Australia’s leading digital bank

We believe that happiness is more important than money.  That satisfaction can come from less, not more.  So we’ve removed the unnecessary extras.  Our aim is to be just the bank you need, plain and simple.


Since 2008, our focus has been taking care of our customers and our community with knowledgeable, honest support and convenient, easy-to-use banking products. To us, looking after our community also means giving back to the areas where our customers live.


By partnering with MyGivingCircle, a like-minded start-up company, we’re able to support important causes and help our people give back to the charities that are most important to them.
