Corporate Funds

The business of doing good

More and more businesses are taking an interest in corporate social responsibility and choosing to give back to the communities in which they work. We know that social good is increasingly important to employees and it will play a more significant role as the younger generations select their preferred employer. 

There are many local organisations in the Western Bay of Plenty - large and small - doing great things in our communities. Setting up a Corporate Fund through Acorn is an easy way to make a difference in the region we all love.
