ANZ Fiji will match $2 for every dollar that their staff will donate through its Staff Foundation Workplace Giving Program, to double the difference it makes in the community.

“Over the past 13 years, we have donated more than $500,000 to local charities and it’s all thanks to our staff members who donate money from their salary each week, which ANZ matched dollar for dollar,” ANZ Fiji Country Head, Saud Minam said.

“Now with a $5 donation – about the same cost as a coffee – each fortnight, once ANZ matches this 2:1, it equates to $390 for the organisation in a year. Imagine if 10 staff members do this – that’s $3,900.”

Mr Minam added that this will be a powerful way to donate and provide great benefits to their community partners.

“Workplace giving through our Staff Foundation is just one way that our people support communities in Fiji. Our staff also contributed more than 4,600 hours of volunteer leave. From school classroom maintenance to mangrove planting to cleaning the foreshore, our people don’t hesitate to roll up their sleeves and get involved,” Mr Minam added.

The ANZ Fiji Country Head said that they were proud of the work that they are doing to help people and the communities in Fiji.

“It is really core to who we are at ANZ.”

 More than 4,200 people this year across Fiji also developed new skills, knowledge and confidence to manage money through ANZ’s flagship financial literacy program, MoneyMinded.

ANZ will be launching a new independent report next week, highlighting the impact and benefits of  literacy program, MoneyMinded in Fiji.
