Coastline Community Foundation

At Coastline, we're big on helping our local community. We proudly offer our customers the same range of personal and business banking services and products that any big bank can, but with one huge difference - we exist solely to support the people who live, work and interact in our community. 

Since inauguration in 2002, Coastline has provided over $900,000 to over 250 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, Hastings and Manning Valleys to provide financial support to organisations that benefit these communities.
