< 1 min read

The Matching Gifts program is Westpac’s largest corporate giving program and was the first of its kind to be introduced amongst Australian banks.

The program involved Westpac matching every dollar that Westpac employees donated to a tax deductible registered charity the Westpac Group matched it.

Donations generated via the 2012 Matching Gift program have gone to The Salvation Army, Oxfam Australia, Mission Australia and local grassroots charity organisations including Little Heroes Foundation in North Adelaide, Cape York Aboriginal Charitable Trust, and Wheeling and Able in Newcastle.

Christine Parker, Group Executive Human Resources and Corporate Affairs, said that for the last 13 years the program led to an average of $45,000 a week being donated to Australian charities.
