As a member owned financial institution we understand the importance of our role in the Community.
We are excited to expand on this to support and provide our community organisations with a product specially designed for voluntary not for profit community organisations.
That’s why we have developed the Community Access Account* – a transactional access account for community groups that’s not only fee free , it can also generate valuable annual beneficiary payments to your organisation.

The Community Access Account is complimented with the Community Saver Account.

Dnister members can earn interest on a great new savings account whilst supporting the community at the same time.

Not only will it provide you with a great high interest savings account, Dnister will also annually contribute an additional 1.00%p.a¹ ‘beneficiary payment’ to your favourite nominated community organisation’s Community Access account.

Our Community Saver Account is a great way for you to support Dnister and in turn we can both support our wonderful community organisations – a ‘win win’ for everyone.
