Commonwealth Bank joins forces with its customers to assist community organisations, affected by the catastrophic flooding across Australia’s east coast, in their journey to recovery.

CommBank is continuing its support for communities impacted by the catastrophic flooding across New South Wales and Queensland after distributing a further $2 million in funding through its CanGive Flood Appeal.

As an immediate response to the floods, CommBank provided $800,000 from the CanGive Flood Appeal earlier in the year to emergency responders such as Australian Red Cross, Queensland SES, New South Wales SES and Thread Together, to provide immediate assistance on the ground. The additional $2 million will help a number of flood-affected charities and communities as they transition out of crisis and into recovery, a process that will continue for some time.

The CanGive initiative was launched in response to the devastating floods and enabled CommBank customers to make their own donations in the CommBank app. In addition, CommBank pledged an additional $1 million top-up to bring funds raised to $2.8 million to support customers and communities clean up, rebuild and recover.

A number of CanGive recipients, like Good360 and Foodbank Australia, were able to use the funds to provide immediate assistance.
