AIA launches community grants programme

AIA says it will invest $500,000 into New Zealand communities as part of the AIA Vitality Business and Community Grant Programme which launches on Thursday.

Thursday, July 2nd 2020, 10:16AM

The programme has been designed to help financial advisers make a difference in local neighbourhoods and highlight the importance of health, wellbeing and overall financial resilience to New Zealand.

Through a competitive application process, ten grants of up to $50,000 each will be awarded to initiatives designed to make a positive difference to the health and wellbeing of New Zealand communities.

AIA is calling on all New Zealanders to join its nationwide think tank to generate ideas for a healthier New Zealand by submitting their suggestions to improve health and wellbeing in their local neighbourhood.

"Our dream of championing New Zealand to be the healthiest and best protected nation in the world starts by helping communities take daily steps towards better health and wellbeing. Initiatives such as this demonstrate the importance of ensuring our communities undertake some form of activity which supports them to live healthier, longer, better lives,” said Nick Stanhope, AIA New Zealand chief executive.

"We’re looking to communities all across New Zealand to put forward their ideas which could include initiatives such as hosting events to create awareness of health challenges; investing in digital promotion of healthy living through podcasts or a video series; developing marketing activities that will drive the awareness of health and wellbeing; and delivering educational opportunities to increase the importance of health and wellbeing for New Zealanders."

AIA will select ten applicants for the grant to be announced in August 2020.

Ideas can be submitted on Instagram with the hashtag #aiahealthynz.
