Local partnership formed in support of local sport and children.

Illawarra Credit Union has once again partnered with Dapto Junior Rugby League Football Club to promote the Partner Benefits Program to all of the members at the local sporting club.

The program, which is a profit-sharing initiative, enables Dapto Junior Rugby League Football Club to raise funds for the local sporting organisation.

As a customer-owned organisation, Illawarra Credit Union has continued to invest in the local community throughout its 48-year history. Chief Executive Officer for Illawarra Credit Union, Anthony Perkiss, said: “Sport has always been an important part of our local community, especially for children. It teaches children the importance of keeping fit and staying healthy. Plus, with team sports, such as Rugby league, they are able to learn a number of valuable life lessons, including teamwork, resilience, leadership, respect, and perseverance.”

“We’re thrilled to have been given this opportunity to partner with a great local organisation and to help them grow while also assisting local families with their financial needs.”

The President of the Club, Jason Tunbridge, echoed the comments from the Credit Union, adding “Dapto Junior Rugby League is excited to be partnering again with the Illawarra Credit Union. We have always appreciated the support they have provided us. Without this support, our Junior Canaries would not have the equipment they require to further their skills, make new friends, and enjoy the game they love. We are looking forward to this Partnership growing over the years to come”.

About the Partner Benefits Program:

The Partner Benefits Program is a profit-sharing partnership that benefits the community groups we partner with, through their involvement with Illawarra Credit Union. It’s an easy way to help raise funds for your club. If you refer one of your family members, a friend, a work mate, a sporting buddy or a neighbour to take out a home loan, personal loan, savings account or transaction account with us, we’ll pay your club a percentage of the balance on a quarterly basis for the life of the loan.
