Join Acorn in Building a Foundation for the Tauranga and Western Bay of Plenty Community
Support your favourite local charity or community organisation through the Acorn Foundation.
The Acorn Foundation (established 2003) is a Community Foundation. The underlying principle of a community foundation is that “Generosity begins on Main Street”. In other words, we believe that people want to support causes close to home, and often close to the heart.
The Acorn Foundation provides a vehicle through which people can make a contribution to the Tauranga and Western Bay of Plenty community every year, forever.
- Leave a gift in your will.
- Donate during your lifetime and have the pleasure of seeing your money make a difference (and receive 33% tax credits).
Capital is invested in perpetuity and the trustees aim to distribute up to 5% of the total funds annually.
Donors can specify their preferred charities or the trustees decide where the money is best needed at the time.
Voluntary trustees are appointed by the local councils and professional bodies.
