Supporting your Community Bank®
The Warburton and Yarra Junction Community Bank® branches are operated by the community and for the community under franchise by the Upper Yarra Community Enterprise (UYCE).
The core purpose of our Community Bank® is the advancement of the Upper Yarra community. This is achieved through the allocation of sponsorship funding that is generated via a profit-for-purpose business model. The Community Bank® prospers because of the support of local people doing their everyday banking at the Warburton or Yarra Junction branches. Staying local is essential to our local economy.
More than $3.7 million has been invested in worthy local community-based projects and organisations since our Community Bank® was established in February 2000.

Your Community Bank®, in conjunction with UYCE, distributes funds to community projects through Sponsorships and Donations.
