Max e-Grants

Education is an important part of a child's healthy development, but for some families, equipping their children with the resources needed for their schooling isn’t easy. 

We believe that every Kiwi kid deserves the same opportunity as the next. That’s why we developed Max e-Grants in conjunction with Barnardos, New Zealand’s largest kids charity, to provide grants to children so they won’t feel isolated or left out of educational activities due to social or economic disadvantage. 

Schools can apply online on behalf of children from 4 to 18 years of age for a grant of up to $5,000. This could include funding for school books and stationery, uniforms and equipment, special tuition, and subsidies to allow children to participate in class outings and camps. 

Since 2011, we’ve donated over $934,000 through the Max e-Grants programme. And together with OfficeMax, eleven of our preferred suppliers have offered their financial support to this programme. We’re proud to say we’ve been able to assist over 14,000 kiwi kids enjoy the educational experience they deserve.

If you are a school, kindergarten or day care centre and know of a disadvantaged child who you would like to nominate for a grant, or if you would like more information about Max e-Grants, visit or click here for a copy of our brochure.
