At Delphi Bank, we highly value the importance of good corporate citizenship as an integral part of our business. We aim to give back to the Australian community that supports us and we constantly think about what we can do beyond banking to help our customers and strengthen the communities they live in.
Over the years, we have developed a diverse community engagement program that includes sponsorships and assistance programs for community groups, sporting associations and educational institutions, while the Delphi Bank Foundation was established in 2009 to support people in the community who experience disadvantage.
