JN Williams double up donations to Eastwoodhill – dollar for dollar

J N Williams Memorial Trust has promised to match any donation to the Eastwoodhill Arboretum Endowment Fund at The Sunrise Foundation, dollar for dollar.

They would like to encourage others to join them in building a strong endowment fund to help Eastwoodhill thrive long into the future. Jane Williams, Eastwoodhill Chair says “unfortunately the funding avenues we’ve relied on in the past are not enough for us to operate and grow a sustainable business today.

We appreciate the generosity of J N Williams Memorial Trust and their gift, along with others, will enhance our ability to be self-reliant and stand strong on our own two feet.”

“We need to strengthen Eastwoodhill as a business and extend into other areas, including education, research and science. The trustees of J N Williams Memorial Trust understand the direction we are taking and that a strong endowment fund will allow us to do this. We are unbelievably excited and grateful.”

Glenda Stokes, Sunrise Foundation Executive Officer, believes “it is the strength of the endowment model that appeals to J N Williams Memorial Trust. It’s incredible Eastwoodhill doesn’t receive any government funding and is reliant on donations and grants.”


For anyone who wants to support Eastwoodhill, now is the time to do it. Not only will your donation instantly be doubled, it will also grow for the future and keep giving back to the arboretum forever.
