Thanks to a new initiative from the Dnister Ukrainian Credit Co-operative, you can make contributions to nominated community organisations, plus earn interest on your own savings, thanks to a Community Saver Account.
How does it work?
You create a Community Saver Account to use, and as according to Dnister’s website:
Not only will it provide you with a high interest savings account, Dnister will also annually contribute an additional 1.00%p.a¹ ‘beneficiary payment’ to your favourite nominated community organisation’s Community Access account.
There are a number of community organisations who you can nominate. This includes the Australian Federation of Ukrainian Organisations. To see a full list of potential beneficiaries, go to Dnister’s information page here.
Organisations can apply to become beneficiaries, via creating a Community Saving Account and applying.
To date, community organisations have received a combined total of $11,043!
