The Legacy Trust

Legacy Trust is the owner of Legacy Funerals and other funeral interests.  The unique thing about the Legacy Trust is that all profits from its business interests go back to the community. 

Our funeral directors have gifted over $2.7million to charities, schools, clubs and other worthwhile causes.  The business model is very special as it truly enables families and Legacy staff to create a lasting legacy in their community. 

Purpose of the Trust

Legacy Trust is a registered charitable trust and the owner of Legacy Funerals and other funeral business interests. The Trust is responsible for the management of business operations and the annual distribution of all profits from the business for the good of the local community. Each year, the Trust makes a full disclosure of fund distribution via their website and local newspapers. Since Legacy Trust was formed in 2007, over $2.7million has been gifted to the local community - generosity that is only possible because of the choice families have made in choosing Legacy Funerals.

Legacy Funeral costs are comparable to others, yet offer added value through benefits to the community.  Some of the charities and organisations to have benefitted include: Waipuna Hospice, Surf Lifesaving Bay of Plenty, Parkinsons Association, Rescue Helicopter, Riding for the Disabled, local colleges, Tauranga Foodbank, Tauranga Arts Festival, Tauranga Rugby Union and the Foundation for Youth Development. These are but some examples, but they portray the breadth of beneficiaries.

Those associated with Legacy Funerals and Legacy Trust hope you can identify with the wonderful opportunity this gift provides for people to make a lasting difference to the lives of others.
