Grace Gives 2016:

At Grace, we recognise that if not for our local communities, we would not have grown as we have over the years, so each year Grace undertakes a range of initiatives to support and maintain that community connection throughout New Zealand.

Last year Grace donated $6,000 to deserving charities, check out what a few of our Grace Gives Grant recipients achieved with their grant:

Second Chance Dog Rescue

Second Chance Dog Rescue received a Grace Gives Grant and used it towards giving abandoned dogs and puppies a second chance at finding a forever home.

Equestrian 4 Everyone

Equestrian 4 Everyone’s were another of our Grace Gives recipients, our Auckland Branch Manager Scott attended their annual ribbon day event to award the group with a Grace Gives Grant of $1,000 to fund a mounting ramp for riders with mobility issues.
