The Waipu Endowment Foundation Trust (WEFT) has been set up under the umbrella of Northland Foundation, solely for the benefit of people living in the Waipu area.
Six founding trustees have been involved in setting up the Fund and they are all passionate about this very special part of Northland and want to see it thrive now and in the future.
The Waipu Endowment Fund Trust represents donations from individuals, organisations and businesses in the Waipu district who want to contribute towards a permanent legacy for the long term benefit of Waipu. Anyone can contribute. Donations, gifts, bequests and endowments of all sizes are encouraged and welcomed.
Waipu-based Trustees will advise on grants. Your contribution will be pooled with others, increasing its effectiveness. The more quickly funds grow the faster WEFT will be able to make funding available.
The Fund needs to grow to at least $50,000 before the interest off the perpetual investment can be gifted back to the community. So please donate to this worthy cause and see your gift invested for perpetuity for Waipu.
You can also claim a tax credit of 33.3% of your donation (rules apply). Contact Northland Foundation or any of the founding donors for more information.
