Community & Partnerships

We’re committed to making a positive difference in the lives of our residents, staff, and local communities. One way we do this is by supporting organisations and events that share our pioneering values and working with them to blaze new trails.

Aligning with local, regional, and national organisations and events that positively impact our communities is a priority for us. See a selection of key partnerships below.

We’re always looking for new ways to engage with our communities

Everyone at Ryman gets behind our sponsorships – from village level to head office.  Each partnership is supported by a strategic plan to ensure that we have as much impact as possible.

Whether you have an innovative sponsorship idea or simply need a hand, let us know how we can help.

Each year, we select a charity partner to work with for the next 12 months.

It’s hard work choosing from the hundreds of requests we receive. So, we choose a new
partner every year to spread the support, awareness, and funds we have to give.

Since 1999, the Ryman team and our residents have raised more than $4 million for charities
across New Zealand and Australia. Supporting fellow pioneers isn’t new. It’s in our DNA.


2023 - 2024 Charity partner applications are now open!

How do we contribute so much?

Our villages, offices, and construction sites all participate in fundraising and promotion for our charity partners.

From raising awareness to hosting quiz nights to donning fancy dress, the Ryman team work tirelessly to make our charity partnerships a roaring success.

Then, we double it!

As a company, Ryman matches every dollar so that our charity partners receive double the amount fundraised.

We’re proud of our charitable partnerships and like to shout about them from the rooftops. We have a large number of Ryman family and supporters who enjoy our partnership updates.

The application window to be our 2023/2024 charity partner has now closed. We will be in touch with all applicants as the process continues. The application window for our 2024/2025 charity partner will open late 2023.
