Community Banking

Banking to save and contribute!

For 60 years Dnister has worked alongside members communities.

We understand the importance of our role in the community and will continue to partner with community groups through our various programs.

Dnister’s Community Benefit Program provides our community organisations with a product specially designed for voluntary not for profit community groups.

The more that your organistions members open a My Community Saver account and nominate your community group, the greater the benefit you will receive annually through the Dnister Community Benefit Program.

Working together to save, grow, give back.
