Aussie female athletes = killing it this year. So we were excited to talk to Sarah Walsh, Head of Head of Women's Football, Women's World Cup Legacy & Inclusion about their partnership with CommBank. It's a big deal as the partnership will see the bank become one of the largest investors in Australian women’s football; supporting the growth and development of the elite women’s game and grassroots initiatives across the country over the next four years. Sarah joined us to talk about the partnership, CommBank's commitment to support equal sporting opportunities for all, and the Matildas’ build-up towards the FIFA Women’s World Cup in 2023.

Financial abuse affects the wellbeing of families and communities all across Australia. That's why CommBank established Next Chapter, a program to help those impacted get back on their feet financially. Through Next Chapter, CommBank has partnered with Good Shepherd to launch the Financial Independence Hub. It provides access to free one-on-one financial coaching and support to help people previously impacted by financial abuse rebuild their long-term financial wellbeing - regardless of who they bank with.

MIND OVER TAX

The average tax refund is between $2,000-3,000, which is nothing to sneeze at. And despite good intentions, more than a few of us make questionable choices once we receive it... Turns out, it's a pretty common trait. CommBank have been looking into how and why we behave the way we do around tax time, and they're trialling different methods to help customers make the right financial choices. Think fewer impulse shoe shopping sprees/more goal achieving. To learn more about improving your financial wellbeing when you're up against, well... yourself, check out the latest.

With more than 45,000 team members across Australia, many of CommBank’s people have been personally impacted by cancer. They have put that energy into Can4Cancer - a staff-led fundraising initiative in partnership with Tour de Cure that raises vital funds to support doctors, scientists and researchers working towards curing and preventing cancer. Having raised more than $10 million since it started in 2014, the aim is to hit $2 million this year. Check out the ‘Can’ spirit in action, and you can donate here.
