‘Rabobank in the Community’ program
The bank continues to maintain its social commitment through the ‘Rabobank in the Community’ Program, with employees embracing the two core initiatives – Community Leave and Workplace Giving – which see bank employees sharing their time and skills with a non-profit organisation and/or making a financial contribution to an official charity partner.
Giving back to the community
Participation in Workplace Giving enables employees to donate directly from their pay to a range of charities. Donations are then matched dollar by dollar by the bank.
Donating work days
Community Leave provides every permanent Rabobank employee in New Zealand and Australia the opportunity to volunteer one working day annually with a non-profit organisation in in their local community. Volunteering projects range from preparing and serving meals for the Salvation Army to selling merchandise to raise funds to other community partners.
The bank’s social commitment underpins the belief that it has a corporate responsibility to support community initiatives. Rabobank’s community partners have a positive and direct impact on community well-being, whether this be economic, social or environmental.
Community partners in New Zealand include:
- Cancer Society
- Landcare Trust
- The Salvation Army
