September is Wills Month

Where there’s a will, there’s a way. Add Acorn to your existing Will for free this month with our partner law firms.

Thanks to the generosity of our partner law firms, this September it is even easier to make a lasting gift to the causes you care about in our local community.

Throughout September, the law firms listed below will allow you to make a simple change to your existing Will to include a gift to Acorn Foundation – at no charge.

Any additional Will changes will be charged at the law firm’s usual rate. 

Leaving a gift to the Acorn Foundation enables you to make a bigger impact in your local community. Unlike a one-off donation to a specific charity, gifts given through the Acorn Foundation are invested in perpetuity, generating income that is distributed annually to community organisations in the Western Bay of Plenty. This means that a gift from a generous donor will continue to give back to the causes close to your heart – forever!


Thanks to the generosity of our donors, since Acorn was established in 2003, we have distributed over $10M to communities in the Western Bay of Plenty. This funding has supported hundreds of charitable organisations that are important to our donors and are vital to our region’s well-being. We currently have just under $60M in funds under management with Craigs Investment Partners, meaning we will continue to give back to our local community, year after year.

If you haven’t yet considered the legacy you’d like to leave locally, Wills Month in September is the ideal time to organise your wishes.

We are grateful to each of the participating firms below for supporting our mission to make an enduring difference in our community, by connecting generous people who care with causes that matter.
