In the Community

Community events and sponsorships

Our communities are the heart of our business. Every year our team volunteer their time and expertise to a diverse range of local events including environmental care and restoration initiatives, search and rescue events, local fire brigade call outs, as well as dog trials, shearing competitions, equestrian events and sports games. 

By getting behind community organisations and sponsoring rural events and initiatives, we're proud to play an integral part in 'Helping grow the country' beyond our day to day business interactions.

Sponsorship applications

We are proud to sponsorship a wide range of charities and organisations within our local communities. To apply for sponsorship of your community event, charity or organisation, please complete a sponsorship application form. We do receive a lot of applications so please allow a couple of weeks for your request to be considered.

Cash for Communities

The Cash for Communities programme was initiated in 2011 between PGG Wrightson and Ballance Agri-Nutrients. The programme has raised over $700,000 for charities, clubs and organisations who support rural New Zealand. It enables farmers, growers and contractors to give back to their local community with their spring fertiliser purchase.

Key sponsorships

We are proud to sponsor and partner with a range of national organisations who support our agricultural and horticultural industries.

From our long standing support of the IHC Calf and Rural Scheme, the Ahuwhenua Trophy and National Shearing Circuit, to the Young Grower of the Year, Young Viticulturalist of the Year, Young Horticulturalist of the Year, Young Winemaker of the Year competitions, and Sprout Agritech, PGG Wrightson’s sponsorship activities aim to celebrate achievement across all industries that we service.

We also get behind vital organisations including Land Search and Rescue and Safer Farms.
