Our Community, Our Potential, Our Future
We’re excited to once again be partnering with our local law firms to promote Wills Month this September.
Wills month is a fantastic initiative that gives people the opportunity to set up a simple Will, or make minor changes to an existing Will, to include a gift to Advance Ashburton Community Foundation, at no cost*.
To take up this opportunity, or to find out more, phone one of the participating law firms:
Argyle Welsh Finnigan, Arrowsmith Law, RMF Silva, Tavendale & Partners, White Fox & Jones.
*Offer applies only to the inclusion of a gift to Advance Ashburton Community Foundation. Any other Will changes or additions may be subject to a fee – seek guidance from your lawyer first.
At Advance Ashburton the simple act of giving goes a long way. We believe in philanthropy that extends the reach of traditional charity. Here, donors have the opportunity to make their mark on the bigger picture and do it in a way that suits them.
This transforming giving into positive impact for our community is at the heart of what we do. We champion philanthropy based on community needs, because we believe in the power of informed giving.
Through the Foundations smart, simple and effective model, every donation stays local, goes further and lasts forever.
