This year’s distribution from the Acorn Foundation sees $3.3M given to the Western Bay of Plenty community. It is Acorn’s 20th year of supporting local charities on behalf of generous donors. If you haven’t yet considered the legacy you would like to leave locally, Wills Month in September is the ideal time to organise your wishes.

Gifts given through the Acorn Foundation are invested in perpetuity, generating investment returns that are distributed annually to community organisations working in areas that are closest to donors’ hearts. If you choose to set up a legacy fund, your donation can be invested and grown into a long-term source of funding for your local community.

The invaluable support from local businesses plays a huge role in Acorn’s ability to continue its vital role in our community. Acorn Foundation CEO Lori Luke says, “Our thanks go out to all of the local businesses who support us – and our community – via workplace and corporate giving, as well as the law firms who partner with us for Wills Month.”

During Wills Month 2023, 16 local law offices across the region have offered to add a gift to the community through Acorn to their clients’ wills for free.

Participating law firms include Abernethy Broatch Law, Anderson Law Office, Beach Law Papamoa, Burley Castle Hawkins Lawy, Cooney Lees Morgan, Fenton McFadden, Harris Tate Lawyers, Holland Beckett Law, Kaimai Law – Bethlehem, Kaimai Law – Katikati, Keam Standen Lawyers, Rejthar Stuart Law, Sharp Tudhope Lawyers, The Mount Lawyers, Tompkins Wake and Toner Law.
