At TSB, we love supporting our community

As a 100% New Zealand-owned bank, we choose to sponsor events and activities that benefit the communities we’re a part of. That way, our people can get involved in the great things New Zealanders are doing for each other.

Sponsorships and events

We sponsor great events taking place in the communities we're a part of across New Zealand. We genuinely care about doing what’s best for New Zealand and the more profit we keep revolving through our local economy, the better the outcomes for our country and people.

Volunteerism and  community support

Our employee Community Day program supports our people to make direct contributions to our communities. This enables our people to give back their time and skills to participate in charity work or local events to support and positively impact the communities we’re a part of.

Toi Foundation

We’re a community-owned bank and every year we pay a dividend to support the work of our shareholder Toi Foundation (formerly TSB Community Trust), which owns 100% of TSB through TSB Group. The success of the bank has helped Toi Foundation contribute more than $153 million into Taranaki communities in the last 34 years.


Our community grants


Surf Life Saving
New Zealand

Just like TSB, Surf Life Saving New Zealand is a Kiwi organisation dedicated to helping New Zealanders. While we support you with your banking needs, SLSNZ is there keeping your family safe so you can enjoy our beautiful coastlines.

These hard-working Kiwis plays an integral role in our communities and we are proud to support those bravely serving between the flags.

Each year we supported national clubs in a variety of ways. Grants worth a total of $100,000 are awarded to several clubs to assist with purchasing equipment, training club members and conducting building maintenance.
