Where there’s a will, there’s a way. Add Hawke’s Bay Foundation to your will this month and leave a lasting legacy to support the causes close to your heart – forever!

Leaving a gift to Hawke’s Bay Foundation enables you to make a bigger impact in your local community. Unlike a one-off donation to a specific charity, gifts given through Hawke’s Bay Foundation are invested in perpetuity, generating income that is distributed annually to community organisations in the region. This means that a gift from a generous donor will continue to give back to the causes close to your heart – forever!

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, since Hawke’s Bay Foundation was established in 2012, we have distributed over $2.2M to communities throughout Hawke’s Bay. This funding has supported hundreds of charitable organisations that are important to our donors and are vital to our region’s well-being. We currently have just over $6M in funds under management, meaning we will continue to give back to our local community, year after year.

Whatever it is you want for your community,

your Big Dream Can Happen!

 

Because when you give through Hawke’s Bay Foundation your gift (no matter what size) can be invested and grown into an ongoing source of funding that can be used how you decide.

September is Wills Month, and if you’re considering leaving a gift in your will, find out how you can make it last forever.

Why Give?

Because your giving stays local.

Unless you specify otherwise, your giving will stay right here in Hawke’s Bay and be felt locally by generations to come. Our administration costs will never exceed more than 1% of our fund value, so you can be assured that your gift is directly benefiting those that need it the most.

Because it has real impact.

Have you ever given money wondering what it will actually be used for and whether it will make any real difference? The power of Hawke’s Bay Foundation is that it pools our charitable giving together to create real scale and then places those funds where they will have the greatest possible impact.

Because it’s a ‘one stop giving shop’.

Through one gift, you can support multiple causes all of which directly benefit Hawke’s Bay. You can direct your giving to areas you care about, or you can leave it in the hands of the Foundation’s trustees to put the funds to work where they believe it will do the most good.
