We can help you assist your clients to fulfil their charitable goals

Clients are increasingly starting to view charitable giving as part of a holistic approach to wealth and estate management. By partnering with Hawke’s Bay Foundation, your clients have the flexibility to shape their own charitable giving to reflect their personal goals and desires. Whether they want to address an urgent need in the community, memorialise a loved one, or help out a charity with a project, we have a giving option to help them make an impact and improve the lives of others in the community.

A growing number of professional advisors are partnering with Hawke’s Bay Foundation because we provide the benefit of talking about philanthropy, without recommending a specific cause. Unlike other charities that support a specific cause or issue, our mandate is to support the entire charitable sector in Hawke’s Bay.

How Can We Help?

The Hawke’s Bay Foundation is happy to support your work with clients. At no cost to you, we can:

  • Consult with you and your clients on ways Hawke’s Bay Foundation can help them meet their charitable and financial goals.
  • Provide printed and online collateral about giving through the Hawke’s Bay Foundation, including information on a variety of different giving strategies.
  • Offer strategies for discussing charitable giving with your clients.
  • Make it as easy as possible for you to set up a Named Fund on behalf of your clients by providing all the necessary forms and information.
  • Keep you updated via our newsletter on latest news and organisations we are supporting.
  • Share with your clients our knowledge and expertise to find out more about an area that they are interested in to get advice on that area and its changing needs.
  • Work closely with your clients to advise them about the management and granting of the funds or they can leave it to us – it is their choice

There are a number of ways for your clients to give to the Hawke’s Bay Foundation, from one off donations to a planned giving strategy that is designed to help them make charitable gifts while enjoying the tax benefits, maintaining their financial security and looking after family members.
