Acorn Foundation adds more oak trees
he Grove is] lovely way to not only have a living memorial to our donors, but also to provide a beautiful haven for the city
Ten more trees have been added to the Acorn Foundation Oak Grove in Cambridge Park.
The oak grove was established in 2013 and is a growing tribute to the generous locals who choose to support their community by gifting through the Acorn Foundation.
More than 100 local community groups are assisted each year through the Acorn Foundation’s generous donors. Gifts/donations made through Acorn are pooled and invested forever, with the investment income used to make grants to local community groups each year. The capital remains intact, so it truly is a gift that lasts forever. Acorn expects this year to grant around $930,000 to the community on behalf of its donors.
Acorn general managerNicky Wilkins says the grove is a “lovely way to not only have a living memorial to our donors, but also to provide a beautiful haven for the city, which future generations of people can enjoy.”
Family members and friends of Acorn Foundation donors gathered to plant the new trees, and to celebrate the lives of their loved oneswhose generosity lives on.
The Acorn Foundation this year celebrates 15 years since inception with 300 donor funds and $21million invested in perpetuity for our community. To date Acorn Foundation has gifted $4.6 million to the community helping over 200 local charities.
