Beyond Bank

Beyond Bank began supporting WIRF back in 2009 when they provided a generous donation towards the State’s first Jet Ventilator. Since this time they have continued supporting WIRF’s fundraising activities.

In addition to sponsoring and assisting with community events like our Family Picnic for World Prematurity Day, Beyond Bank make a donation to WIRF with each Community Reward Account opened.

Customers are asked to nominate WIRF as their community beneficiary when opening their Community Reward Account. On 30th June each year Beyond Bank calculates the average annual balance in all Community Reward Accounts linked to WIRF and donates a percentage of this figure to the Foundation.

As well as assisting WIRF, the Community Reward Accounts benefit the customer by offering competitive interest rates, no monthly account keeping fees and 24/7 access to funds over the phone or internet. For more details, or to open an account call Beyond Bank on 13 25 85 or visit their website.

WIRF is truly grateful for Beyond Bank’s ongoing support.
