The Warehouse Group and Kiwi Communities

– Our brands’ commitment to the community

Our vision is to be Here for Good by helping communities throughout New Zealand flourish and contributing to a more sustainable country and planet. All businesses within The Warehouse Group share this commitment, and the last financial year has seen continuing evolution of each brand’s activities.

The relationships we have with many of our community partners have grown well beyond that of purely fundraising to deliver better outcomes for thousands of New Zealanders. Collectively we have worked with more than 800 charities and community organisations from Kaitaia to Invercargill to help them assist the most vulnerable New Zealanders.

Thanks to company contributions and the continuing engagement and generosity of our customers and suppliers, we have raised and distributed more than $71 Million in donations since 1982. We have also developed a bolder environmental strategy to reflect our responsibilities in this area, the results of which will be evident over the coming years.

At a national level, we partner with 10 charity organisations.
