Introducing the LLL
LLL Australia is a charitable financial institution which provides savings accounts and has been trusted since 1921.
The LLL prides itself on providing savings accounts that are simple and fee free, with a great interest rate. The LLL has a variety of savings accounts: personal and joint accounts; guardian accounts for children; and Business accounts, including self-managed super funds and not-for-profit organisations.
Features of an LLL Children's Account
LLL Savings Accounts have many features, including:
- A great interest rate
- No fees or charges at all
- Internet banking
- No minimum balance or deposit requirements
- No ‘bonus’ interest hurdles Your money is available to withdraw at any time
Using an LLL Savings Account is an easy method of saving for a goal or target.
As an Authorised Deposit-taking Institution (ADI), the LLL is regulated under the Banking Act and by APRA. The LLL is the only charitable ADI in Australia and is a great ethical alternative to the major banks. The LLL has been supporting the Lutheran Church of Australia’s (LCA) community (including Lutheran Schools) for nearly 100 years.
The LLL provides loans to approved LCA projects, such as upgrades to Lutheran schools, churches and care facilities, with surpluses assisting the LCA in its mission.

Apart from Federal and State sources, funding for development projects come from two main sources. Firstly, our Development/Building Fund is generously supported by contributions from Parents and Friends of the College. But the majority of funding is gained from LLL (Lutheran Laypeople's League) through the provision of Matching Deposit low-interest loans (5%).
Without past and present support from the LLL, Victory would not have been able to develop to its current standard. As a parent or supporter of Victory Lutheran College, Wodonga, you are able to help the College by depositing funds with the LLL and making it a Matching Deposit for Victory. The concept of Matching Deposits provides an ingenious way to support a particular project within the LCA and is unique to the LLL.
Matching Deposits at the LLL
The concept of Matching Deposits is a unique facility offered by the LLL and provides an ingenious way to support a particular project within the LCA, such as Lutheran School projects. Approved LCA projects are able to borrow funds from the LLL to the total amount of Matching Deposits at a competitive interest rate.
Any LLL Savings Account can be a Matching Deposit to support an LCA project loan and it does not change the financial status of your LLL account. You can make deposits and withdrawals as usual and the account still earns a great rate of interest. An LLL Matching Deposit does not act like an off-set account.
Ask our Principal or Business Manager about how LLL Matching Deposits benefit Victory Lutheran College.
