Westpac Chopper Appeal

The annual Westpac Chopper Appeal raises awareness and funds for New Zealand’s rescue helicopter charitable trusts.

Every cent of these donations go to your local Chopper, ensuring your contribution supports your community.

The funds raised enable our rescue helicopters to continue helping people in need. Be it airlifting new mums in labour to hospital, or saving adventurers from life-threatening incidents, your contributions help keep Kiwis safe, whoever they are, whatever they’re doing.

Westpac has been a proud sponsor of the rescue helicopter services for over 40 years, as:

  • The principal sponsor of the Auckland, Waikato, Wellington and Canterbury rescue helicopter services;
  • An associate sponsor of the West Coast, Tauranga, Taupo and Palmerston North rescue helicopter trusts;
  • A provider of support and funding to promote and manage the annual Westpac Chopper Appeal, which supports all rescue helicopters in New Zealand.
