Our History

It was created in 2001 by not-for-profits coming together and investing in a different kind of company. One that sought profit for a purpose. It was a bold move; they were prepared to risk their money to realise their vision to develop a banking service that would enable the not-for-profit sector to increase its financial capacity and benefit from the capital flows within the sector.

Community 21’s Vision

Is a sustainable and effective Australian not-for-profit sector in control of its financial destiny.
