One of Australia’s greatest causes.

Half of the annual $45 card fee is donated to the Defence Bank Foundation - a charity whose sole beneficiary is Defence Community Dogs. This needed and welcomed cause provides specially-trained assistance dogs like Bruce (the handsome face featured on the card) to veterans living with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Meet Bruce.

A credit card that gives back.

Australia’s Defence Bank has a strong and proud record of serving and supporting those who protect us. The new Defence Bank Foundation Visa Credit card provides a tangible way for all Australians to give back to the Defence community.

The Community Dogs’ program changes lives through assistance dogs at no cost to veterans. Under the program, rescue dogs are trained in correctional facilities before being presented to veterans - providing a second chance for the dogs, inmates and veterans.
