Support the small charities making a difference to Victorians.

It’s easy to take everyday objects for granted. Most of us wouldn’t spare a thought for the humble spoon; a simple door key wouldn’t stop us in our tracks; a spanner wouldn’t take pride of place on many mantelpieces.

Yet for the Victorian charities that benefit from the Bank of Melbourne Neighbourhood Fund, these small items have the power to create great change in people’s lives. The spoon builds friendships; the key opens up new futures; the spanner teaches life skills.

Simply by purchasing one or more of the items below, you can help your fellow Victorians get a better start, a new beginning or a second chance at life. And that’s no small thing.

By purchasing an item today, you are not buying the item itself. You’re buying opportunities and essential resources for Victorians in need. All donations will be used to assist Victorian charities in the next Neighbourhood Fund funding round.
