Sponsorship & Funding

We’re determined to do our bit for the community. While we would like to be even more generous with our sponsorship commitments, unfortunately, we are unable to take on any additional requests at this time. We will update this page if that changes so please keep an eye out.

Xero employees meet with a small business

We're supporting great causes

From the Xero Assistance Programme (XAP), providing free and confidential mental health and wellbeing support, our partnership with New Zealand Football to help grassroots football grow with better numbers off the field through a club support programme, to our commitment to Net Xero @ Xero, supporting projects like Fishermans Bay conservation project by purchasing carbon credits, we’re proud to support a number of social and environmental causes and are committed to efforts to contribute to thriving communities.

We back all kinds of forward-thinking initiatives

That said, it’s important to consider the things we look at when we review these proposals. While we wish we could say yes to each and every request that comes our way, we have to be selective about who we support, what we contribute financially, and we need to make sure sponsorships align with our brand and business objectives too.

Criteria for sponsorship

While we are not accepting applications at the moment, here’s some information about the criteria your proposed activity needs to meet to be considered for sponsorship:

  • support small businesses, bookkeepers or accountants
