Downer Donate

We believe our people know their communities best! That’s why Downer Donate encourages employees to nominate local causes in need of funds and support. Every month from July 2022, Downer will donate up to $15,000 to a selection of nominated charities and causes.

Community volunteering

Downer community volunteering is a way to connect and engage in our local communities in group-based activities. Volunteering is designed to provide an opportunity for our people to come together to contribute their time and skills to assist the wider community.

Every Downer employee from across the business can apply for up to one full day of volunteering leave.

Whānau scholarship

Downer New Zealand offers whānau scholarships to the children and grandchildren of their employees. We grant up to four scholarships of $5,000 per year, for a single year, to support tertiary study.
