Developing the next generation

Kiwi kids are natural-born problem solvers, but to become tomorrow's innovators they need the right equipment at school. That's a problem we can solve together by supporting the Genesis School-gen Trust.

Donating is easy - just add $2, $5 or $10 to your monthly energy bill and you'll be giving Kiwi kids access to science, technology, engineering and maths equipment that will help them build the skills they need to meet the challenges of the future.

Genesis and the Trust

The Genesis School-gen Trust is a registered charity (CC56571), which is governed by an independent Board of Trustees who operate under the direction of a Trust Deed.

Genesis is the Trust’s naming-rights sponsor and has donated $400,000 to the Trust since its inception in 2019. In addition, Genesis covers all the running costs so that every dollar donated goes directly to purchasing equipment for schools.
