Turn your spare foreign change into a positive change with Bankwest and UNICEF.

Do you have foreign coins floating around the bottom of your bag from that overseas trip? Or do you have leftover funds on your travel money card but no plans to use them? You can now donate your foreign coins and funds at any Bankwest branch and 100% of the proceeds will go to UNICEF Australia.

As part of UNICEF’s Coins for Kids program, you can now donate your foreign coins at any Bankwest location whether you’re a customer or not. Whether it’s rupees, rand or rubles, every donation can go a long way, even if it only adds up to a few cents or dollars.

Where will your donations go?

  • $4.60 buys exercise books for 10 children
  • $5.50 buys a soccer or basketball for kids to play in the schoolyard

Reduce your wallet clutter and help make a difference by donating your leftover foreign coins to UNICEF the next time you head into Bankwest.
