The difference since 2003
Since Acorn was established in 2003, we have supported hundreds of charitable organisations in the Western Bay of Plenty – all thanks to the generosity of caring people in our region.

Who we’ve helped
Thanks to our donors, we’ve supported organisations large and small
that are important to our region’s wellbeing, and whose mahi inspires us.
Supporting our community during Covid
When Covid-19 reached New Zealand’s shores in 2020 and the country went into lockdown, we joined forces with three other funders in the Western Bay of Plenty to create a new Rapid Response fund.
The fund supported Western Bay of Plenty community groups to help our community recover from the impact of the pandemic.
