What is Closed for Good
Closed for Good is BNZ’s annual day of volunteering. We close our stores and most of our support offices on the day and get out into New Zealand communities to lend a hand.

FINANCIAL LITERACY HELP
BNZ is committed to helping New Zealanders be good with money. During Closed for Good our trained staff go in to organisations, groups or schools to deliver workshops on budgeting, being scam savvy or money basics for kids.
We have staff with a broad range of skills they use on a daily basis in our business who go out and help other organisations grow, solve a problem or plan – HR, finance, marketing, digital, social media and strategy to name a few.
Sometimes the best thing we can do to help New Zealanders be good with money is get something done that would otherwise cost a community organisation hard-earned money.
BNZ customer? You can still get your banking done on the day
