Community Foundation

At Coastline, we proudly offer our Members the same range of personal and business banking services and products that any big bank can, but with one huge difference - we exist soley to support the people who live, work and play in our community. 

The Foundation

Since inauguration in 2002, Coastline has provided over $900,000 to over 240 worthy local causes who have benefited from Foundation grants.

The Foundation’s goal is to provide support to organisations that provide benefits to local communities. Each year Coastline provides 5% of its operating profit to the Coastline Community Foundation as a way of showing our tangible support to the community.

The Coastline Community Foundation is just one of the many ways Coastline Credit Union gives back to the community. The foundation was established in the communities of Macleay Valley, Hastings and Manning Valleys to provide financial support to organisations that benefit these communities.

  • Volunteer Organisations
  • Family Support Groups
  • Tourism & Promotion
  • Environmental Organisations
  • Education (libraries, special schools, learning aids, amenities, etc.)
  • Community Assets (halls, sports fields, equipment, playgrounds, etc.)
  • Health (hospitals, pensioner’s league, etc.)

To apply for a Coastline Community Foundation grant you must clearly outline how the project will benefit the communities in which Coastline operates.

Please note: Applications are currently not available for Coastline Community Foundation Grants for 2018. Please contact us for more information about this year's community grant program.


All Coastline branches are equipped with free to use marquees, regularly used for sporting, club, school and fund raising events providing shelter from the summer sun. If you interested in borrowing the Coastline Marquee for an event, contact us now.
