Feeding the homeless, solar-powered bathroom facilities at a sporting complex, a social education and behavioural improvement program to educate young boys and medical equipment for a hospital ICU unit.
They are among 50 projects being funded by the IMB Bank Community Foundation. On Wednesday, Illawarra’s home-grown bank donated $500,000 to more community projects in areas in which it operates. That brings the total over the last 19 years to $9.1 million in funding for almost 650 projects.
IMB Bank chief executive Robert Ryan said the 2018 recipients were all dedicated and determined to assist the communities where they live.
“There are thousands of people dedicating their time and effort every day to make life better for others,” Mr Ryan said.
“I am proud that, through IMB Bank Community Foundation funding, we can work in partnership with local groups to provide new facilities, services and support that add tangible value to our communities and create better outcomes for the people living in them.”
Mr Ryan said the Top Blokes Foundation was a great example of how the outcomes of funding local projects can have widespread benefits in the community for many years. Click here to read more.
