In our community

Sponsorship and Events

From Auckland to Christchurch, we sponsor great events taking place in the communities
we’re a part of.


Volunteerism and community support

Our employee volunteer programme supports our people to make direct contributions to our communities. This could be anything from team building, one-off support to an organisation or helping out at one of our sponsored events. In 2017 we donated native trees to parks and communities around New Zealand. In Taranaki, a local park received trees to support the Stratford District Council project to clear areas of overgrown scrub and blackberries in the area. In Hawke’s Bay the trees went to the Karituwhenua Landcare Reserve, a local walkway that was converted from scrubland, and in Auckland the Motutapu Restoration Trust received a donation towards its tree planting programme.


TSB Community Trust 

We’re a community-owned bank and every year we pay a dividend to support the work of the TSB Community Trust, which owns 100% of TSB through TSB Group. The Trust offers grants to eligible community organisations and individuals for charitable, cultural, philanthropic and recreational activities.

Our sponsorships

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.

Last year, we supported national clubs in a variety of ways. Grants worth a total of $115,000 were awarded to several clubs to assist with purchasing equipment, training club members and conducting building maintenance. We also donated $30,000 to SLSNZ thanks to customers who took out a new home loan with us during our summer limited time offer. Customers who were eligible also got to enjoy a year’s worth of house insurance on us.
