Defence Bank - Our Purpose

Our Purpose


The Defence Bank Foundation provides help to members of the Australian Defence Force during their time of greatest need. We do this by providing funding to Australian based projects which help current and ex-service men and women and their families who have suffered life changing wounds, injuries or illnesses as a result of serving their country so that they can rebuild their lives with the support and dignity they deserve.

Our overriding objective is to give money where it will make a real impact and achieve a meaningful result for individuals and the Defence Community.

The Defence Bank Foundation's current focus is on providing the funds to Defence Community Dogs to train rescued Dogs to the level of Advanced Dog Obedience (or Companion Dog) to allow the dogs to be used as Therapy Dogs to support the rehabilitation of serving and ex-serving Australian Defence Force Members suffering Post-Traumatic Stress Disorders (PTSD).
