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.
In our community
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.
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.
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.
Kiwis for Kiwi
TSB has partnered with the charity Kiwis for Kiwi to help turn around the plight of our national bird. TSB employees are taking on the role of TSB Kiwi Couriers as part of the Bank’s community volunteer leave programme.
