Westpac has a long and proud history of supporting the communities where New Zealanders live and work.
Westpac Rescue Helicopters.
New Zealand’s rescue helicopters save lives. Their highly trained crews respond to critical situations, and the most remote. We’ve proudly supported them since 1981.
We’re principal sponsor of the Auckland, Waikato, Wellington, and Canterbury rescue helicopter services. In addition, we’re an associate sponsor of the West Coast, Tauranga, Taupo and Palmerston North rescue helicopter services.
We provide people and funding to promote and manage the Westpac Chopper Appeal. This nationwide campaign aims to raise at least $1 million each year, and we support all New Zealand rescue helicopters through this appeal.
Sir Peter Blake was a legendary New Zealand leader, explorer, and environmentalist who continues to inspire us all. We are the Foundation Partner of BLAKE: an organisation that aims to help New Zealanders make a positive difference to the planet by encouraging environmental awareness and leadership development.Find out more
Dementia friendly banking.
We're proud to be New Zealand's first dementia friendly bank. Our aim is to help people with dementia and their families to plan ahead, arrange access to financial services and support their independence for as long as possible.
If you’re living with dementia or care for someone that has dementia, please arrange a time to talk with us about how we could help.
