The Bendigo Community Bank model is a 'profit-with-purpose' philosophy, where profits are returned directly to the local community that has generated them. Importantly, the community decides where those profits are invested. Branches are locally owned and operated which is a distinct point of difference to other banking institutions. More than $220 million has been returned to Australian communities and initiatives over the past 21 years just from people choosing to do their everyday banking with their local Community Bank. By banking with Toodyay & Districts Community Bank & Northam Customer Service Centre you are helping us generate the income we can put back into our local communities.
