If you’re good with money, you can do great things with it. That’s why we actively support a range of charities and organisations throughout New Zealand to help them reach their full potential.
Investing in futures with Plunket
Since 2010, we have partnered with Plunket on a number of fundraising initiatives, so they can continue to provide support to New Zealand families and give our young Kiwis the best start in life.
Check out the BNZ Plunket Hub for financial tips and tricks when you're planning for a family, including our Baby Budget Calculator - designed with Plunket to help parents be financially prepared for their new arrival.
Supporting our teams in more ways than one
BNZ is the naming-rights sponsor of the Canterbury Crusaders. We couldn't think of a better way to show support for the Canterbury region and the Christchurch re-build, than by helping to retain and develop their top rugby talent.
We're pleased to continue our partnership with the Blues Super Rugby franchise and support a region that's produced some of this country’s biggest rugby stars, including Michael Jones, Carlos Spencer, Jonah Lomu and Keven Mealamu.
Helping Kiwi businesses grow
Deloitte Fast 50
The Deloitte Fast 50 is an index that celebrates the fastest-growing companies in New Zealand and appears in more than 32 countries around the world. We've partnered with Deloitte to help celebrate the success, and support the sustained growth, of Deloitte Fast 50 companies.
We’re a founding partner of The Icehouse, a business growth hub that offers workshops, transformation group programmes and customised business coaching that provides valued support and education needed to grow businesses and fast-track start-ups.
Start-Up Alley helps social enterprise and technology start-ups to grow. The competition is held annually at Webstock, where finalists pitch to a panel of business experts in front of a live audience, vying for a share of a $30,000 cash prize pool.
Supporting young companies
Growing a business offers many financial challenges, but our innovative banking solutions can help. 21 of the companies appearing on the Deloitte Fast 50 Index, choose to bank with BNZ - watch this video to see why.
