Information about donating by Cheque

The Salvation Army will no longer be able to accept donations via cheque as of 01/07/21. As about 40% of our donations currently come via cheque, we want to work with you, our donors, to find an alternative way to donate that works for you.

We greatly appreciate your support, and we understand that this may be a difficult time for many of our donors. Your peace of mind is one of our top priorities, so we endeavour to make the transition as smooth as possible. The Salvation Army offers our donors multiple different ways to ensure they can continue to support New Zealanders in need:

  • Call your bank's 0800 number - you can ask your bank to make a one-off payment or set up a monthly donation to The Salvation Army. (Please note, there will be wait times and security protocol for banking over the phone). Ask for your Supporter Number to be quoted as the reference code.
  • Call our Supporter Services Team: Call us on 0800 53 00 00 to make a one-off or monthly donation over the phone using your debit or credit card
  • Through our website: Click the "Make a Donation" button on our website. You can make a one-off monthly donation with your debit or credit card
  • Internet Banking: Add us to your bill payment list by typing The Salvation Army in the payee box, and our account details will appear. You can also make a one-off donation (payment) directly into our bank account: BNZ 02-0568-0091726-00. Please enter your supporter number in the "Reference" field

If you are concerned about how to continue to support the Sallies now that cheques are being phased out, you can call our Supporter Services Team at 04 382 0744. They will talk you through the changes that are taking place and will help you decide how you can continue to support us in the future.
