On behalf of our amazing donors, supporters, volunteer trustees and committee members, it was an absolute honour to win the 2019 Social Enterprise Award at the recent Westpac Tauranga Chamber of Commerce Business Awards.  Acorn has certainly had an amazing year as we passed $30M in funds under management and distributed over $1M to the community for the first time.  This award has really topped off our year, and confirmed to us that we are indeed headed in the right direction. Thank you to Metro Marketing who sponsored this award, and a special thank you to all those who have supported Acorn along the way!
