Bank Better, Live Better

together, we can share hope in our communities

As we face uncertain times for the foreseeable future, living better means standing together – to support, to share and give hope. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we've made a commitment not only to put our clients first, but also our communities and those in need.

We are passionate about our people – that includes all South Africans and communities, and are committed to supporting initiatives that can improve their circumstances. As part of our commitment to help #FlattenTheCurve and help those in need of relief during this crisis, we've gotten involved in the following ways:

  • To assist with screening, testing and preventing the spread of COVID-19, we've made donations towards the Solidarity Fund and Gift of the Givers Foundation
  • To focus on humanitarian support and how we can bring relief to struggling communities affected by the lockdown, we've partnered with local NGOs to help feed and support families in need
  • We've encouraged volunteerism among our employees and challenged them to identify opportunities for virtual volunteering, fundraising and food donations in their communities. In return, we will match their contributions rand for rand
  • To ignite hope and lift the spirits of our people during this time, we challenged musicians J'Something from Mi Casa, K.O, Msaki and the Qwabe Twins to create a song of hope. All proceeds from the song, called "Rainbow" will be donated to the Solidarity Fund to help people and businesses in need of relief.
