The Working Together More Fund (WTMF) welcomes the Len Reynolds Trust as a sixth member
Made up of philanthropic trusts and foundations, WTMF committee members are delighted to see another family based philanthropy join the Fund in support of its purpose – to support collaborations and mergers that bring long-term benefits to non-profit organisations and the communities they serve.
The WTMF is a solid example of successful collaboration with a well-established pool of funders – they work in collaboration to support collaboration.
The Len Reynolds Trust was established in 1966 by farmers Len and Ada Reynolds as a trust fund for the benefit of others. Funds have been distributed since that time by the Trust. The mission of the Trust is to build partnerships with Waikato community organisations by financially supporting families, education, the environment and social well-being.
The Trust’s founders practiced generosity as a way of life. They sought not to waste money or resources, so as to give to others. In 2014, Community Waikato was appointed as the Trust’s fund manager to help distribute funds to the Waikato Community more directly & actively. In 2017, annual distributions exceeded $750,000 and this continues to increase each year. Today, the Trust aims to create and continue strong connections throughout the community. With these connections, the Len Reynolds Trust aims to give widely and effectively.
