Why we give

“It’s easy to think about being charitable but not do anything about it, it takes a certain resolve to put the ‘giving wheels’ in motion. Once I started I found it incredibly rewarding.

I chose Hawke’s Bay Foundation to manage my charitable giving because there’s no bureaucracy, it’s local and gets through to the people who need it. It’s got integrity and I like that.”
