Your Business Can Save Lives
Are you looking for innovative ways to engage your employees, develop a dynamic, caring culture and make a positive impact in your community?
Supporting your rescue helicopter can help you achieve all of these things, and more!
Our organisation was born in 1985 from the heartfelt desire to mark the loss of two much-loved Philips NZ Ltd employees in a meaningful way, through the creation of an emergency rescue service for the local community.
When your rescue helicopter is tasked to a mission, it’s because it is the fastest, best, and often the only option for patients. One day, the person in the chopper, relying on our critical care might be your employee, customer, client, or family member.
Your business’ support will provide safety and security, so your community always has a safety net, no matter where they go, or what they do in our beautiful country.
Help keep your rescue helicopter in the air and saving lives.
Make A Donation
An easy way to support the Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter is to make a donation from your business!
Your donation will go towards the cost of a mission and help ensure we can be there for the next person who needs us.
Fundraise At Work
Fundraising at work is a fun way to engage your team and your customers – from simple things like team morning teas, raffles and team challenges, to larger-scale events like trivia and movie nights, what you do to fundraise is up to you!
You can even set up a donation page on our website to help with your fundraising.
Get in touch to let us know what you’re planning – we’d love to help!
Did you know you and your employees can donate to your rescue helicopter direct from your salary?
It is one of the easiest ways for your team to donate, allowing staff to donate to their rescue helicopter every time they receive their paycheck, with immediate tax benefits. We receive $5 for every $3.33 that a team member contributes, meaning both sides benefit.
Contact us for more information about how your business can implement payroll giving.
