Why is this important?

Since 1998, we’ve given our employees at least two days each year to volunteer their time and talents to support communities. As a workforce of over 30,000, our people make a big impact. We're involved in both volunteering initiatives and matched workplace support.

What we do


Our people can provide invaluable assistance to build capacity and deliver critical work. From general or skilled volunteers, individuals or groups, our volunteering program flexes to fit community needs.

How community groups and social enterprises can request our volunteering services

If you’re a community group or social enterprise, we're looking for volunteering activities that:

  • Can benefit you through unskilled labour or by leveraging our employee’s skill sets.
  • Can be held on-site at your location, preferably during the working week and is easy to get to.
  • Are safe and supervised and don’t involve unsupervised contact with children or the disabled.
  • Are not of a direct fundraising nature or where community groups are paid for sourcing volunteers.

Before submitting a request consider:

  • It’s a requirement that you hold public liability insurance and a copy of your policy is provided.
  • We can’t guarantee the availability of volunteers as volunteering is optional.
  • Volunteering directly with children under 18 is prohibited unless a police check is obtained (in accordance with state and territory legislation) and you verify this.
  • Activities that promote political lobbying, illegal activities and direct fundraising will not be promoted.
  • Activities that may put employee personal safety at risk will not be promoted.

Matched workplace giving

Launched in February 2007, our Workplace Giving Program encourages employees to make regular donations directly from their salaries to Australian registered charities. NAB then matches these donations to the value of $1,200 per employee annually. If your charity has Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status, you can be a part of our program by registering with our third party administrator Good2Give.
