Our Vision: Making our region a better place, forever.
You can support your local community forever by making a gift in your will through the Acorn Foundation. Your gift will keep on giving because the capital remains intact, is invested, and the income from the investment is distributed annually to charities and community groups in the Western Bay of Plenty.
When making distributions YOUR wishes are paramount -: you can choose which groups to support, or leave the decision to our Trustees and Distributions Committee who know the needs in our region.
