The principal objective of the Trust is to actively fundraise and attract sponsorships, donations and bequests in order to maintain a fund available to build strength through diversity within the LGBTQI+ community in New Zealand.
These are available annually to assist students who identify as LGBTQI+, entering their first year of tertiary studies, who can demonstrate academic success, community leadership and positive role model influence for Rainbow-affirming peer and community support.
Support Grants are available annually to individuals, groups and non-profit organisations for a range of Rainbow-affirming projects and to assist LGBTQI+ support services. The Trust supports applications which benefit the wider NZ Rainbow community rather than any particular individual.
Development Grants are available annually to encourage individuals, groups and non-profit organisations in the NZ Rainbow community to hold or stage educational, cultural and sporting events in NZ. The Trust supports applications which benefit the wider NZ Rainbow community rather than any particular individual.
