Matching gifts

Where our people choose the charities they want us to support. 

Our program

Matching Gifts is one of our company’s best-loved community programs. Every dollar donated by our eligible employees to Australian-based, registered charities with Deductible Gift Recipient status (DGRs) is matched by Westpac Group. We believe this is one of the most democratic ways of allocating our philanthropic contributions.

Our Matching Gifts program was the first of its kind among Australian banks, having been formed in December 1998. Our Matching Gifts program creates significant value - it's a source of pride for our people; it also helps to build stronger communities by supporting charities right across Australia which deliver important social services to so many people.
