Supporting local families for a stronger, healthier community. 

 

 

Fundraising and Awareness

Our Story

The Jassy Dean Trust was born out of gratitude for the love & support the Dean family received from the Waiheke community when their teenage daughter, Jassy was stricken with Meningococcal Meningitis and died.
 
The Jassy Dean Trust was formed in 1993 as a celebration of Jassy's life and a way to reciprocate the support the Dean family received from the community. The Trust has grown into a voluntary community resource, helping hundreds of local families with assistance during times of crisis, accidents or illness and providing on-going support where needed. 

 

Our Mission

The Jassy Dean Trust provides families on Waiheke access to financial assistance for child healthcare & on-going benefits for the child's medical wellbeing.
