School Community Rewards provides a regular financial benefit for your school without having to donate any time or money.
So far, our School Community Rewards program has raised a grand total of $441,326 for participating South Australian Schools!
How it works
- Simply take out any of our highly competitive Home Loans, Car Loans or Personal Loans.
- Nominate your school as a School Community Rewards beneficiary.
- We will then donate 0.20% of your loan amount(s) to your school each month, providing valuable extra funds for the school to use however they wish.
It’s win-win! You’ll get the benefits of our great rates and products, while also delivering an ongoing financial benefit to your school
Since we joined the School Community Rewards program we have received over $32,000. This has enabled us to undertake significant upgrades to the school including a new bike cage, school garden and play equipment. Being part of the program was especially beneficial during 2020 when COVID-19 hit as it meant we were still able to fundraise despite all our usual annual fundraising events being cancelled.
"Being able to have a lower rate home loan, with flexibility that suits our needs, and help out my children’s school with fundraising at the same time is just fantastic. The process to switch to Credit Union SA was transparent and super easy. We are now saving hundreds and paying our mortgage off quicker." Jack
