We have strong connections in our communities, and our people do too.
Our staff members suggest where we can make a big difference in their communities, through sharing our Employee Community Fund.
A small donation can make a really big difference to community groups and projects.
We’ve helped schools and pre-schools, sports teams and groups that support families. Our Fund has bought sports uniforms and equipment, paid for events, and supported travel and accommodation. We’ve bought BBQs, a dog-training frame, playground equipment and gardening tools.
Carefully targeted donations, suggested by our people, make a difference for thousands of people in New Zealand communities.
