Twelve Days of Christmas

Spreading a little Christmas cheer to communities across New Zealand

As we prepare for a busy time of year welcoming people from across the world, we’re pleased to bring $144,000 of Christmas cheer to 12 great charities, with our annual Twelve Days of Christmas grants.

Thank you to our generous travellers

Thanks to the hundreds of thousands of travellers who placed currency into collection globes around our international and domestic terminals this year. This is the twelfth year this money has been made available to registered charities.

Also we want to thank our Twelve Days of Christmas media partner The New Zealand Herald for giving each charity the chance to tell their story in the days leading up to Christmas Eve.

About the charities and the causes that will benefit

These charities are working in the greater Auckland region in one or more of the three areas Auckland Airport has chosen to support as a socially responsible business: empowering people through education, helping people into employment and protecting the environment.

These grants are part of Auckland Airport’s annual community giving programme.

Applications for the Twelve Days of Christmas community giving programme open in late October each year.
