Beyond Bank Australia has partnered with the Wagga Wagga Rescue Squad for the past 25 years. In 2013, we provide the Squad with a $20,000 grant from our Foundation to assist with the purchase of a new rescue vehicle. Then, in 2014, we launched a community fundraising appeal to raise the additional funds to purchase the vehicle.
The Wagga Wagga Rescue Squad is a registered recipient of our Community Reward Account. “The Community Reward Account program has delivered great benefits to the Rescue Squad and since registering as a recipient organisation in 2004, we have received over $45,000 in annual bonus payments. These payments help us maintain and purchase much needed rescue equipment to ensure the safety of our local community. We are very appreciative of how the community and our volunteers have supported our organisation through the Community Reward Account. I would definitely encourage all community groups to become a recipient; there is no catch, just great benefits for all involved.” Ray Willett, President of Wagga Wagga Rescue Squad.
How you can help!
You can help us support the Wagga Wagga Rescue Squad by opening a Community Reward Account and nominating the Wagga Wagga Rescue Squad as the recipient. Every year we give up to 1.25% of your annual average balance to your nominated charity – so the more you save the more we can give back to the Wagga Wagga Rescue Squad.
You can also offer a charitable donation to our community fundraising appeal to purchase the Squad’s new rescue vehicle at our Wagga, Coolamon or Ganmain branches.
