How We Make A Difference
Supporting National Organisations
Being a 100% New Zealand owned company; we take pride supporting national organisations. As part of this, we have partnered ourselves with the Starship Foundation, New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation, SPCA, Coastguard Northern Region and many other charities and schools.
We strongly believe in enabling Kiwis to achieve recognition on an international stage. With this in mind, the Giltrap Group also supports New Zealand sports people; this includes a New Zealand Olympic partnership with Volkswagen NZ and support for New Zealand-born race drivers.
Furthering Society and Culture
As you can see, it’s not just about charitable donations, it’s about partnering with organisations charged with continuing and furthering integral parts of society such as education, cultural events, arts & entertainment, local and national sports, and medical awareness, research and care.
Supporting our community through ongoing sponsorship, and charitable donations is a defining aspect of our company. It's a family value that is instilled in our staff and operations from Sir Colin Giltrap, who was awarded for his services to philanthropy.
We aim to make a difference in a variety areas by lending support to non-profit-organisations, charities, schools, causes and sports clubs. This is done at a number of levels through our local dealers, national brands, head office, and the Giltrap Trust.
The Giltrap Trust
In 2013, the Giltrap family founded The Giltrap Trust. The family work together as trustees, with Lady Jennifer Giltrap instrumental in the trust’s operations.
The Giltrap Trust meet on a regular basis to discuss ways in which they can lend a hand. This might be in the form of existing partnerships, new funding applications or making a one-off donation to a worthy cause.
The Giltrap Trust, working under the umbrella of the Giltrap Group brand continue to make a positive impact across Auckland.
We choose to partner with organisations charged with continuing and furthering integral parts of community such as education, cultural events, arts & entertainment, local and national sports, safety, and medical awareness, research and care. As a group of New Zealand organisations, we believe in caring for the country we live in and the people around us. Click here to discover who we partner with.
Our brand ambassadors are people that model The Giltrap Group's core values. It isn't all about us choosing them; they choose us too.
We believe this is because they relate to our people and what we stand for. They also help us reach out and give back to the community, but also encourage others to lend their support.
We think the best way for us to make a difference in the community is to focus on a select few people, organisations and causes. There so are many worthy causes that we would love to support, unfortunately, we can't meet every request. But, if you think your proposal aligns well with our values, please visit our contact us page.
