Started in May 2012, Helping Hands allows employees to donate to 6 charity partners through regular payroll deductions. All employee donations are matched by JB.
JB recognises its responsibility to give back to the community. We believe workplace giving is an efficient and effective way to give back.
Charities we support
Forest & Bird
Why these charities?
JB staff members selected the charity partners to be included in the program. The final choices cover a broad range of areas of social concern. The aim is to encourage staff to donate to smaller charities where the JB Hi-Fi staff and corporate donations would really make a big difference each month.
Is JB Hi-Fi looking for more charities to support?
JB Hi-Fi is not currently expanding the number of charities we support. Whilst we undertake an annual review of our charity partners, we prefer to focus our support on a limited number of organisations in order to maximise the benefit to our current commitments. This assurance provides our charities with the confidence that JB's ongoing sustainable support will allow them to develop long-term projects and ensure we help deliver their long-term vision & short term goals together.
How you can make a difference
"Change For Change" is our store "spare change" donation program. Donation boxes are installed in all New Zealand stores to encourage our customers to donate some of their spare change to help change the lives of many. All donations are divided evenly between our charity partners.
