Secure your organisation’s
Setting up a Community Group Fund with the Acorn Foundation will ensure that your organisation receives a continuous income stream in the future. It’s free to set up and your supporters can donate to your fund at any time during their lifetime or in their Will.
Once your fund reaches the $50,000 distribution threshold, your fund will generate returns and a portion of these are returned to you each year. Learn more below.

We’re here to help
Adding a Community Group Fund with Acorn to your fundraising strategy is a smart way to maximise your income. You can offer your supporters the option of leaving a gift in their Will to your fund. Donations made through bequests consistently represent a large piece of the giving pie.
We can help you formulate and implement an effective bequest strategy to grow your Community Group Fund.
“To meet our mission of “Saving Lives At Sea”, we have a need to increase our sustainable income. We envisage that our Acorn Foundation endowment fund will play a significant part in achieving this.”
– Dane Robertson, Operations Manager, Tauranga Volunteer Coastguard
“Our Community Group Endowment Fund supports the refuge to tell our story to potential benefactors, so that we can receive help to provide a safe place to grieve, heal and plan for the future. Some families have bequested gifts to us and might have left us $10,000, and we’re just like, WOW!”
– Hazel Hape, Manager of Tauranga Women’s Refuge
