Connected Communities Melbourne is a Community Company established for the benefit of every Melbourne resident. This company will operate at two levels , firstly by supporting the 27 participating communities with smaller grants to local Not For Profits Organisations in those areas, and secondly by supporting other organisations who are addressing the major challenges and opportunities across our city, by partnering and contributing towards their efforts.
How it works is quite simple. Individuals and businesses can nominate Connected Communities Melbourne, as their community beneficiary, when they bank with any of the 27 participating Bendigo Bank Branches.
Institutions, Businesses and Individuals throughout Melbourne can join Connected Communities Melbourne as financial supporters, and contribute to the community strengthening work of our company.
Connected Communities Melbourne operates with total transparency, and lists all grants awarded as a result of the support of our financial backers.
Our Company is a vehicle through which all of Melbourne can work together, Individuals, Businesses, Institutions and Government.
Connected Communities Melbourne will produce regular video updates, so look for our first publication in the coming weeks.
