ANZ operates a number of employee foundations across our region. All employee donations to the foundations are matched by ANZ.
Australian Staff Foundation
The ANZ Staff Foundation has distributed $3.7m in small grants to community organisations since July 1997. Grants of around $5,000 support a variety of projects from disadvantaged youth to the environment. A National Advisory Board and State Committees comprising ANZ employees decide the granting rounds each year.
Applications are accepted twice a year: 15 January and 15 July.
|Case Study: Building a foundation for better learning|
Vermont South Special School assists children with a mild intellectual disability and in November 2011, ANZ Staff Foundation provided funding for the school to purchase three new iPads and educational applications.The iPads enable students with poor fine motor schools who have difficulty writing to engage in interactive educational sessions and are lighter and easier for some students with physical disabilities to carry.
Clare Collopy from Vermont South Special School said "We are extremely grateful to the ANZ staff Foundation for their generous donation. The iPads help to improve communication skills and the capacity for independent learning in our students who have a mild intellectual disability. We also look forward to ANZ employee volunteering at the school in the near future".
New Zealand Staff Foundation
The ANZ New Zealand Staff Foundation was established in 2000 to help meet the needs of New Zealand communities. ANZ New Zealand employees choose to donate to the Foundation through their salary and the bank matches donations dollar-for-dollar. Since 2000 the Foundation has given more than $2 million in grants to more than 450 charities in New Zealand.
Applications are accepted twice a year: 15 February and 15 August.
