Donations to the Tiger Mateo Education Trust, in remembrance of her dad Marc Mateo, who was taken too soon.

Main image

Our friend Marc Mateo was taken from us suddenly and tragically on 13 June 2015. Our thoughts are with Marc and his whanau - he was a well known fixture in the Piha community, and he will be sorely missed.

Knowing what a devoted dad Marc was, several people have expressed interest in donating towards Tiger's education.

We have set up an educational trust on Tiger's behalf. This fund is intended for Tiger's tertiary education, should she choose to pursue it. If not, she will gain access to all funds when she turns 25.

The trustees of the Tiger Mateo Education Trust are Marc's friends and Piha locals Tina McLaren and Steve Morrison, and Brett Carpenter from Queen City Law.

Many thanks to Queen City Law for the legal advice and a trust account.

Marc won't be there to help Tiger as a young woman. Tina, Steve, and I wanted to be able to help her in some small way during that time with a trust fund targeted at her tertiary education or her 25th birthday, whichever comes first.

“Very sad about the loss of Marc”
“We did not know Mark very well but when he came into our home he was so friendly and such a gentle nature. We were so sad to learn of his passing. We give our heartfelt sympathies to all that were close to him and would like to help Tiger in the future.”
“Go well in life, Tiger. All our love.”
“We had lots of fun living with you guys! Wishing you all the best!”
“It was a privilege to have known Marc, and witnessed his devotion and love for his beautiful daughter. We will always open our hearts and home to Tiger, and do what we can to help her reach her dreams.”
“Thinking of you and your beautiful Mama and sending you both loads of love xxC”
“I am so happy that something like this has been set up. It facilitates a way for the many wonderful family and friends that Mark and Tiger have to contribute their support and a genuine way to help. I myself am so happy to be a part of this giving, and help in some small way towards Tigers”
“With Love Tiger. Rest in Peace Marc, XX Elena”
“So sad that Mark has gone and happy to help Tiger just a little.”
“All the best Tiger”
