WHY THESE CHARITIES?

JB staff members selected the charity partners to be included in the program. The final choices cover a broad range of areas of social concern. The aim is to encourage staff to donate to smaller charities where the JB Hi-Fi staff and corporate donations would really make a big difference each month.

CHANGE FOR CHANGE / WHAT IS CHANGE FOR CHANGE?

"Change For Change" is our store "spare change" donation program. Donation boxes are installed in all New Zealand stores to encourage our customers to donate some of their spare change to help change the lives of many. All donations are divided evenly between our charity partners.


 

IS JB HI-FI LOOKING FOR MORE CHARITIES TO SUPPORT?

JB Hi-Fi is not currently expanding the number of charities we support. Whilst we undertake an annual review of our charity partners, we prefer to focus our support on a limited number of organisations in order to maximise the benefit to our current commitments. This assurance provides our charities with the confidence that JB's ongoing sustainable support will allow them to develop long-term projects and ensure we help deliver their long term vision & short term goals together.
