ANZ is one of New Zealand’s leaders in payroll giving, with over 2,000 staff contributing regular amounts from their after tax salaries and wages. These contributions are matched dollar for dollar by ANZ and go towards their charitable trust, the ANZ New Zealand Staff Foundation.
Since inception in 2000, the ANZ New Zealand Staff Foundation has distributed over $4 million in community grants to over 550 charities and community projects nationwide.
The ANZ New Zealand Staff Foundation has two funding rounds per year which close at 5pm on 15 February and 15 August, or on the next business day if either of these dates fall on a weekend or public holiday.
In the August 2017 funding round they received 132 applications for funding. Of these charities, 45 were successful with grants totalling $282,694.00.
