Generate KiwiSaver Scheme is thrilled to announce their new partnership with the Spirit of Adventure Trust. This collaboration aims to support the development and growth of young people in New Zealand by offering them the opportunity of a lifetime.

“Just as we’re dedicated to empowering Kiwis get where they want to be (in retirement), the Spirit of Adventure Trust is committed to helping our young people develop essential life skills and the resilience they'll need to get where they want to be in their lives. It’s a mission that really resonates with us.” said Elizabeth Harding, Generate Head of Marketing.

As part of this partnership, Generate will support the trust by giving a donation and sponsoring four deserving young individuals, aged between 16 to 19 years, to experience the Spirit of Adventure: 10 Day Development Voyage, each worth $2995. These voyages provide participants with the opportunity to embark on a journey of self-discovery, while also forming lasting friendships and broadening their horizons. This initiative reflects Generate’s commitment to supporting Kiwis to make decisions and take actions now, that will help them be better off in the future and foster a brighter future for New Zealanders.

“We love working with New Zealand organisations that are as passionate about the next generation as we are” said Chantelle Harper GM Marketing and Strategy at the Spirit of Adventure Trust. “Together we will empower the next generation of Kiwis."

“So many Kiwis have a deep connection to the sea, including us; Generate has a long standing partnership with the Live Ocean Foundation, which we know our members love. So working on this collaboration and giving our members the chance to nominate someone in their lives to go on one of these incredible voyages, is a meaningful fit for us. We’re proud to be able to bring this opportunity to our members alongside the chart-topping long-term returns they have come to know us for.” said Harding.

  • Generate KiwiSaver Moderate Fund ranked 1st in the NZ Multi Sector Moderate Category*
