“I’m glad that I can give, but I want to give effectively. For me, Hawke’s Bay Foundation is the key to making sure my contributions are distributed in our community where they’ll have the greatest impact. The Foundation has the knowledge and expertise to understand and assess community needs.”

Lyn Williams, Cornerstone Donor

“I think it’s really important to give back – it’s not just up to our parents’ generation to do it. I can’t give a lot to the Foundation at the moment, but I know that each donation I make counts. And I really like the fact they know where the needs are in the Bay.”

Jock Nowell-Usticke, Donor since 2013

“When advising clients on planning their philanthropic giving, Hawke’s Bay Foundation is certainly an option I suggest. My clients value the fact that their gift will be preserved forever – it will go on growing and giving to the Hawke’s Bay community for many generations.”

Graham Throp, Partner, Bramwell Bate
