Acorn Foundation celebrates generosity in WBOP

Acorn Foundation is releasing a video showcasing some of the community organisations impacted by the organisations support.

Each August, the foundation announces its distributions to the community. And this month is no different.

These distributions are enabled through the thoughtfulness of their growing donor base, says general manager Lori Luke.

She says in acknowledgment of this generosity, and in advance of their distributions announcement, the Acorn Foundation has released a video showcasing just some of the community organisations that are impacted by this support.

“At the very centre of what we do at Acorn is connecting generous people who care with causes close to their hearts. Through the contributions of our supporters, we are able to make significant and lasting impacts on many of our region’s community groups each year. 

"This video allows us to celebrate the generosity in our region and hopes to encourage others to join us as we build a stronger community together.”

The video showcases a number of organisations across the region including the Katikati Community Centre, Shakti Ethnic Women’s Support, Good Neighbour, Omanu Beach Surf Life Saving Club, Page/Acorn scholarships at Page Macrae Engineering, BOP Youth Development Trust, Tauranga Moana Nightshelter Trust Takitimu House, Bay Conservation Alliance, Huria Trust, EmpowermentNZ, Tauranga Community Foodbank and scholarships for the Dale Carnegie Youth Programme.  Lori says the video gave Acorn the opportunity to shine a light on some of the transformational work these organisations do every day.

“Through our donors’ support, the Acorn Foundation is able to help address our community’s greatest needs and enable our community organisations to continue their hard work towards building a thriving community.

"While we could never hope to showcase all of the groups we support each year, we wanted to highlight how our community is strengthened by the power and impact of many through the generosity of spirit and giving.”

As a donor I highly recommend Acorn as a great organization to consider making a bequest to in your will. The donation is in perpetuity so your gift is invested and therefore helps fund groups in Tauranga to continue their great and important work, or for scholarships and grants. So many people need a helping hand and you can also choose or leave your gift open to Acorn to where it is needed the most. Name your fund in memory of a loved one perhaps. I recommend you contact Acorn for more information than my clumsy synopsis as Acorn is so much more .
