Information for supporters who donate by cheque

 

Most banks have now stopped processing cheques. What does that mean if you support Coastguard by sending us a cheque?

We rely on your help to train and equip our volunteers and save lives at sea. But we totally understand that for many supporters it has become a bit more difficult to save lives at sea now that cheques are being phased out. The good news is that making the switch to another donation method isn't as difficult as you might think. You will find information to help you on this web page, and remember that we are only too happy to help. You can call Ann and the team on 09 303 4303 (press option 4).

There are a number of other easy, quick and secure ways you can still make your donation.

If you bank with ASB

ASB (Coastguard's bank for donations) will accept cheques until 27 August 2021.

  • If you bank with ASB and send us an ASB cheque, we can deposit this up to 27 August 2021, but please make sure to send it by 16 August to give us enough time.
  • If you bank with any other bank then please do not send a cheque. We will have to return it to you.
