Listed below are a range of Whai Rawa payment options to make it easier to save.  Remember:

  • to always include a member six digit Whai Rawa number with every payment
  • there is now no minimum amount for any payment

Automatic Payment (AP)

‘Set and forget’ – an AP is the easiest way for most people to save.  When setting up an AP please ensure the member’s six digit Whai Rawa account number is entered in the reference field.

Child members (15 and under) need just $0.97 a week for the 52 week calendar year  to receive the maximum Matched Savings of $200* from Te Rūnanga. Download our tamariki/child AP at $0.97 here.

Adult members (16 and over) need just $3.85 a week for the 52 week calendar year  to receive the maximum Matched Savings of $200* from Te Rūnanga. Download our matua/adult AP at $3.85 here.

Internet Banking (direct deposit)

Another easy way to make either a one-off or regular payment into your account is via internet banking.

Account number: 01-0102-0857398-000

Ideal for making contributions to multiple accounts, cheque payments are also a good option if you don’t know the Whai Rawa account number/s of the people you want to make a contribution for.  If you do know the members account number, please write it on the back of the cheque otherwise just list their full names and amounts.

Please note overseas cheques are debited a $15 bank fee at the ANZ which Whai Rawa are unable to meet the cost of.  Members in Australia are encouraged to deposit funds into our ANZ Australia account (see below). For members elsewhere it will usually be cheaper to deposit funds using our Paypal facility (see below).

ANZ Australia Account

You can electronically deposit funds into our Australian bank account.  This  allows you and your whānau to make one-off or regular payments online from your Australian bank account into Whai Rawa.

We transfer funds from this Australian account into our New Zealand ANZ bank account on the last day of each month.  Earnings will accrue on your deposits from the date they are transferred to our New Zealand  bank account.  Our Australian account details are here.

Koha Whai Rawa

Whatever way you choose to save with Whai Rawa and whether it’s for a birthday or Christmas gift or a regular contribution it’s important to acknowledge those who are assisting their whānau with future goals.   To help make sure your contribution to your tamariki and mokopuna gets remembered contact us to have a Koha Whai Rawa certificate sent to them (or sent to you to give to them).  If you know it, please include the the six digit reference number for the account the payment refers to.
