Giving back

We’re passionate about supporting the community.

At The Brand Makers, we firmly believe in the responsibility of giving back. Our community supports us, so we feel it is our duty to show our support right back.

In 2023 alone, we were proud to provide support through product and donations to the following organisations.

We’re proud to support:

Major Sponsorships

The Brand Makers is proud to be a major sponsor of Te Tamawai Trust, a charity working to break down barriers by providing personal development opportunities to children, with a focus on helping disadvantaged youth. Te Tamawai Trust provides two programmes, The Waterboy, and Taku Wairua to help empower tamariki and rangatahi on their journey towards adulthood.

The Waterboy

The Waterboy believes that sport is a key part of optimum personal development of youth and is breaking down barriers to reach their vision of every Kiwi having the opportunity to participate in sport. Here’s what the team has to say about us.


Taku Wairua

Taku Wairua is a personal development program created through observing common wellbeing deficiencies in rangatahi supported through The Waterboy.

Taku Wairua focuses on four main pillars of personal development, Belonging & Identity, Self-Discovery, Goal Setting and Citizenship and is delivered through primary schools in the Waikato region, with online sessions and tools made available for free through sponsorship and support.

Our staff have reached into their own pockets to support even more people in need to

donate 8 beds to the Variety Club Warm Hearts Appeal
support Breakfast Club Food Drives
pay the $2,000 excess for a local school when their tech unit was burgled
donate Sports Clubs kits for families unable to purchase
support a local young man Tyson with $500 to help him and his family to fundraise for his fight against Leukaemia.

We’ve also been there in times of need, to support those escaping dangerous situations, and by providing clothing to accident or emergency patients whose clothing has been damaged.

Supporting our communities is in our DNA.
