Programs & initiatives

We’ve been backing Australia since 1817. And we’ll continue to do so, in our next century and beyond. For our bicentenary year, we’re doing our bit to help all Australians thrive.

Bump

Westpac will help get new eligible young Australians born in 2017 off on the right foot, with our new Bump Savings account. To celebrate our 200th year, Bump Savings accounts come with a $200 deposit for eligible Australian babies born during 2017, which they can withdraw when they're 16. A wonderful start to a promising future. Conditions apply.

Westpac Foundation

We’re for Australian communities. That’s why we back local, not-for-profit organisations with big ideas that help change people’s lives.

Westpac Foundation is our most established social giving program. We’ve been a part of this community for 200 years, and we want to continue giving back to the people who need it most, far into the future.
