Over the Counter

You can make your donation at any branch of the Westpac Bank. Simply advise them that you wish to donate to ARHT to support Auckland's Westpac Rescue Helicopter.

Payroll Giving

Payroll Giving is a IRD function that allows employees to make regular donations to approved charitable organisations, of which ARHT is one. The advantage of supporting us in this way is that your tax credit is applied immediately the deduction is made - that's a 33c credit for every dollar you donate (under our official name 'Auckland Regional Rescue Helicopter Trust').

Employers are not obligated to provide this service to their staff, so you will need to check with your payroll administrator to see if they can deduct regular contributions from your earnings. If they can, then you will need to provide them with our details, the amount and frequency that you wish to make IRD have an information brochure available here and an excellent section on their site explaining the process here.

If you decide to support us in this way, please let us know so that we can ensure that you receive the appropriate acknowledgement.
