Did you know you can donate your TECT rebate directly to the Acorn Vital Impact Fund?

Are you a Trustpower customer and in a position to consider putting your TECT rebate to work in our community? The Acorn Foundation Vital Impact Fund lets you do just that. The fund invests your donation, and interest earned from this investment is distributed each year to deserving community organisations – so your donation keeps growing and giving forever. And you’ll even be able to get back—with a donation receipt from Acorn Foundation you can claim a 33.3% tax credit. It feels good to give, but its feels better to give forever.

Community organisations who have been supported by the Acorn Vital Impact Fund include Tauranga Community Housing Trust, Good Neighbour Aotearoa Trust, Awhina House, Tauranga Women's Refuge, YMCA Tauranga and Graeme Dingle Foundation.

Beneficiaries must make their payment option selection by 17 June 2020, in time for the July 2020 rebate.
