Lions Cancer Institute received $10,000 Centenary Grant in support from Commonwealth Bank West Perth branch on 18 May 2018:
In celebration of a 100-year legacy of giving, Commonwealth Bank employees are giving $10 million to community organisations, with 1,000 Centenary Grants valued at $10,000 being distributed.
The Lions Cancer Institute is pictured receiving a Centenary Grant, with CommBank West Perth branch and employees having nominated it in recognition of the much needed services it provides to the local community.
Commonwealth Bank donated $10 million to the CommBank Foundation in celebration and recognition of 100 years of employee giving and this donation funded the Centenary Grants. More than 13,000 current and retired bank employees donate a portion of their income to the program, with Commonwealth Bank contributing up to $2m each year as well.
The inspiring and far reaching impact of the work undertaken by the Lions Cancer Institute was a crucial factor in it receiving the grant.
“We’re thrilled to be able to support organisations like the Lions Cancer Institute in the important work they do for our local community,” says Commonwealth Bank West Perth branch manager, Peter Plowman when presenting the cheque to Lions Cancer Institute Chairman, Lion Phil Chinnery.
Thanking Peter for the grant, Chairman Phil said the Lions Cancer Institute was very grateful for the support from the Commonwealth Bank Foundation, which will be used to maintain our Mobile Skin Cancer Screening activities throughout WA.
