Giving back to the community
You’re an essential part of where you live, work and play. So it makes sense to do your bit for the not-for-profit organisations that bring communities together. Helping out by volunteering your time or raising money makes a big difference to New Zealanders. And it makes you feel good too. Definitely a win-win situation.
Work with a Kiwi youth-related organisation for up to two weeks a year while still getting paid. We’ll let you know about these youth volunteering positions, so that you can apply for one that captures your imagination.
You can also choose your own charity to work with. It doesn’t have to be youth-related; you just need agreement from the charity, Vodafone NZ Foundation and your manager.
“Through the Hands Up programme, I had the opportunity to work for a non-profit organisation called Ka Mau Te Wero based in Glen Innes. I left the experience with so much and know that I am a better person because of it.”

If there’s a charity that’s close to your heart, the Vodafone Foundation will match your fundraising efforts dollar for dollar, up to a max of $3,000. This programme lets you target a cause that you feel passionate about.
“Being part of supporting our Sales people and customers who were affected by the Christchurch Earthquake has been my proudest achievement at Vodafone. I was able to be a part of making a difference to a lot of people who were in a horrific, life changing time in their lives. Vodafone did what it does best – putting our staff and customers before anything else. We are still raising money for Christchurch and will continue to make a valuable change in the community for years to come.”
