WAIHEKE NEEDS YOUR HELP
The media loves to promote Auckland's jewel in the Crown, but beneath the glitter lies a real community with real people who face real challenges the media ignores. Waiheke needs charitable funding as part of a long-term plan. The funding base must be independent of government, but not keep asking tapped-out sources for annual donations.
Trust Waiheke seeks to raise a $20 million endowment structured so that the principal is ethically invested to return $2 million/year as a long-term revenue stream that funds charitable & service groups on Waiheke Island. The Trust will not compete with such services, it will become an endowed umbrella funding source.
