Every donation to the Defence Bank Foundation helps us cover the costs to rescue, feed and train more Assistance Dogs to help a Veteran suffering from PTSD to improve their lives. It costs over $10,000 to train each Dog.

All donations over $2.00 are Tax Deductible.


You can raise funds in many different ways – participate in an event and nominate the Defence Bank Foundation as your preferred charity, host an informal event in your workplace, at a club, or with a group of friends.
