We’re thrilled to announce the Whai Rawa Fund has reached the $100 million mark. This is a testament to the amazing work of our members and the contributions from Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu.

Whai Rawa was established in 2006 with a relatively small group of inaugural members and the desire to build something that would benefit Ngāi Tahu whānau in the areas of financial management, saving and financial education.  It also had a key goal of providing a vehicle for Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu to give back to our iwi members. Now, today in 2020 with over 29,000 members we have reached the $100 million mark which is a massive achievement and shows the determination of, and positive impact for our members. We are so proud of our Whai Rawa whānau and the savings made over the past 14 years.

If you’re just starting out on your Whai Rawa journey, we hope this inspires you to start saving today.
