Narre Warren’s Christians Helping In Primary Schools (CHIPS), a non-profit organisation that provides support to children and their families who have suffered trauma in their lives, has collected a $20,000 windfall.

In celebration of a 100 year legacy of giving, Commonwealth Bank employees are giving $10 million to community organisations, with 1,000 Centenary Grants valued at $10,000 being distributed.

CHIPS is receiving a Centenary Grant, with Fountain Gate and Westfield Casey Central branches and employees having nominated it in recognition of the much needed services it provides to the local community.

The inspiring and far reaching impact of the work undertaken by CHIPS was a crucial factor in it receiving the grant.

“It’s important to us that we support local organisations like CHIPS. It’s incredible to see how they support the wider community,” says Commonwealth Bank with Fountain Gate Branch Manager, Melanie Aarons.

“When we first found out about the CommBank Foundation’s Centenary Grants program, it was so exciting to have the opportunity to nominate a local organisation that’s meaningful for us. It was a unanimous decision to choose CHIPS to receive the $20,000 grant.”

Right across Australia, Commonwealth Bank employees will be supporting local organisations that benefit youth wellbeing, access to education, and cancer research and awareness.

For the Centenary Grants, Commonwealth Bank donated a further $10 million to CommBank Foundation.
