We need your help!

By donating, you can help support the Trust continue to carry out its important work supporting our Rainbow Community.

Auction Items

The Trust holds several fundraising events each year that have an Auction component. Auctions have traditionally been a major part of our ability to raise the funds needed to support the Community. We actively seek items to be donated large or small. Items can be things like services, travel, accommodation, artworks, books, wine, hospitality, experiences of any kind, let your imagination run wild.

You can make a one off donation directly to the Trust or set up a monthly automatic payment from your bank account using our donation form.

Financial donations to the Rainbow New Zealand Charitable Trust are fully tax deductible.

Wills and How to Make a Bequest

If you consider the work the Rainbow New Zealand Charitable Trust does important, you can continue to help even once you have gone to the end of the Rainbow! Your Will can easily be made or updated to donate a particular amount of money, or the remaining funds after distributions to other beneficiaries, or any kind of property or asset that could be sold.

You can make a general bequest or you can specify which of the Trust’s Grant programmes you’d like the money to go to (Scholarships, Community or Pride) and we will use your bequest to build our capital base from which we can generate investment income while preserving the original capital you provided.

The following are example clauses for you to consider. They are only a guide, and we recommend that you consult with your lawyer to see if the example clauses work with the wording of your Will. If you would like us to recommend a ‘Rainbow friendly’ lawyer, please contact us.
