nabtrade – NAB’s online trading platform – has announced it will donate revenue received from its annual Charity Trading Day on Tuesday 22 November to First Nations Foundation.
First Nations Foundation is a nationally recognised charity dedicated to achieving economic prosperity for Indigenous Australians, by building financial literacy and business skills across the country.
It’s the sixth year nabtrade has donated revenue from its annual Charity Trading Day to a community / not-for-profit organisation. Over the years, more than $1.5 million has been donated to charities including Rural Aid, Burrumbuttock Hay Runners and the Alannah & Madeline Foundation.
NAB Group Executive, Business and Private Banking, Andrew Irvine, said NAB was committed to creating real outcomes and positive change in partnership with Indigenous Australia.
“It’s fantastic to be working with First Nations Foundation to help strengthen financial resilience and increase business and employment opportunities for our Indigenous communities,” Mr Irvine said.
“Our customers and colleagues really get behind Charity Trading Day and this year we’re keen to drum up a lot of interest to raise money in support of First Nations Foundation.”
NAB partnered with First Nations Foundation early last year to support its research into global best practice in Indigenous-led financial literacy, education, and wellbeing programs. A year on, the Foundation is using this research to inform and build their financial education strategy.
Phil Usher, CEO of First Nations Foundation, said the Foundation was thrilled this year’s Charity Trading Day would help them connect with the community.
“We’re really looking forward to getting back on Country. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people like learning through storytelling and shared experiences but we haven’t been able to do as much face-to-face training over the past two years due to COVID-19,” Mr Usher said.
“The money raised will support us to deliver our My Money Dream program in person, which for many of our community has a life changing impact.”
nabtrade Charity Trading Day was established as an annual event in response to the growing number of investors wanting to do business with companies that reflect their values and give back to the community.
