Don’t be a hōhā, give the whānau a koha

The exceptionally popular koha certificates for Whai Rawa savings are available again this year. Just let us know how much you’ve paid into a whānau member’s account and when. We’ll do the rest by sending the card to your whānau/moko on your behalf – call us for more details.

Last chance to join and save
If you are not already in Whai Rawa you’ve still got time to join before the 31 December cut-off date for matched savings and distributions (if any) payments.

Matched savings
Have you saved your $50 (tamariki/child members) or $200 (members aged 16-64) to qualify for the full $200* matched savings yet? Did you know there are now just 4 or 5 pay days (if you’re fortnightly paid) to qualify for the 2013 Matched Savings?

Who won the survey?
Kia ora to everyone who helped us with the short survey on our website. We are always on the lookout for feedback on how we’re doing and Holly McLaren was the winner of $100 for participating in the survey. $100 has been paid into your Whai Rawa account Holly. Wananei.

NZ household budget kit
We’ve got one of these household budget books to give away. If you’d like it, contact us or post onto our Facebook page and we’ll put you in the draw.

Kā Pūtea grant
How many of your whānau are studying at university or polytech? Anybody studying at an NZQA equivalent course could qualify for the Ka Pūtea grant of $250 or $500 (for second-year students and above). Applications close on 6 December, so they’d better get in quick – for more information go to Grants at
