Community at heart of Craigs
Alongside its relationships with clients, Craigs also fosters partnerships within the community. “It’s important to us as a business to support the communities we operate and live in. It’s very much the fabric of the culture at Craigs” explains Tim Kiefte.
On a national level Craigs is a devoted supporter of Hospice New Zealand and Community Foundations of New Zealand.
Here in the Bay, the Craigs Tauranga and Rotorua branches support many community, sports and arts initiatives such as the Steamers, BOP Cricket, BOP Bowls, Garden and Arts Festival, Rotorua Hospice Golf Tournament, Geyser Cricket, to name just a few.
Craigs has also supported the Acorn Foundation in Tauranga from its foundation. The establishment of the Craigs Community Fund in 2019 to help support communities in a more structured manner, was a natural progression from this partnership.
Craigs Community Fund and Workplace Giving Programme
Craigs Community Fund was established based on ethics closely aligned with the Acorn Foundation. The idea is to build a fund that is large enough to donate back to our communities well into the future. After just 2 years, the fund has donated over $300,000 back into local communities.
Craigs employees can choose to participate in payroll workplace giving, with employee contributions matched by Craigs up to $500 per year, per employee. The programme already has over 150 employees contributing.
“Workplace giving has been one of the most rewarding aspects – to see so many colleagues support a philanthropic cause. The concept is less about the amount that is donated, but more about engagement. I would encourage any company with a community focus, to contact Acorn or Geyser Foundation to discuss how to adopt workplace giving. It’s administratively straight-forward to set up and manage” says Oliver Pomfrett, Head of People and Performance.
