ADEPT MACTODD Charitable Trust

For the past 25 years Mactodd have been involved in the administration and support of ADEPT (Amisfield Elderly Persons Housing Trust).  ADEPT has been administered under the guidance of partners of the firm and MACTODD’s own corporate Charitable Trustee. 

ADEPT originated in 1979 when philanthropist David Swiffen arrived in Queenstown and purchased the site formerly occupied by the White Star Hotel (now the popular Village Green).  Sharing the fruits of his investment with the Trust, a fund was established that has grown and been carefully nurtured and invested over the years into what is now a substantial investment portfolio. 


Introducing ADEPT MACTODD Charitable trust

We are extremely proud to officially launch the ADEPT-MACTODD - Charitable trust with a $76,000 donation to Hospice Southland.  Hospice Southland provides specialist palliative care services to those with a life-limiting illness in Southland and the Wakatipu Basin, free of charge, and ideally in the setting of their choice. The expansion of hospice services in Queenstown will  mean patients can be cared for in their community and their own homes, without having to travel to Invercargill.  The benefit of a locally based service for our community was a determining factor in gifting these funds says MACTODD Partner and Trustee, Jayne Macdonald.
