Reliance Bank Sponsorships

Attention: open in a new window. Print

Reliance Bank is a proud supporter of many local events, charities and sporting teams. We are committed to making a positive change in our local community and it is for this reason we created the Reliance Community Support Fund (RCSF). The aim of the RCSF is to provide financial assistance and support to community initiatives within the Central West region of NSW.

As the Bank grows and prospers so the RCSF can increase its assistance to local community projects. If you are involved in a local 'not for profit' organisation in the Central West you may be eligible to apply for a grant.
