Helping vulnerable animals find a new home

More than 160 previously homeless dogs, cats, puppies and kittens can be de-sexed, micro chipped, vaccinated and found new homes following a $10,000 boost to RSPCA South Australia [1].

The payment was made possible through the volume of Community Reward Account [2] holders in South Australia nominating the RSPCA as their preferred charity.

RSPCA South Australia Chief Executive Officer Tim Vasudeva says the organisation is grateful to Beyond Bank Australia [3] for its generous support.

“As a community-based charity, we rely heavily on the generosity of our supporters to provide the best possible care for animals in need,” he said.

“By nominating RSPCA South Australia as their preferred charity, Beyond Bank Australia customers are making a real difference to the lives of vulnerable animals.”

The RSPCA South Australia payment was among $50,000 that Beyond Bank [3] donated to South Australian charities, community groups and not-for-profit groups that are encouraging their supporters to open a Community Reward Account [2].

It’s part of our commitment to provide grassroots support to boost fundraising and help deliver much-needed services to the community.

Since we established the account 12 years ago, more than $1.7 million has been distributed to community groups across Australia, helping us to continue delivering services that make a real difference to the community.

How does it work? Community Reward Account [2] funding is distributed to not-for-profit and charitable groups that have registered as a recipient of the program. Beyond Bank account holders select which group they’d like to support and at the end of each financial year, 1.25 per cent of the average balance held in all Community Reward Accounts assigned to each organisation is donated from Beyond Bank revenues.

There’ve been some amazing results and truly positive changes in many organisations as a direct result of the Community Reward Account [2] funding, so thank you to everyone who has shown their support.
