GiveOUT Gala a great success for Rainbow New Zealand Charity Trust

What is GiveOUT Day?

GiveOUT day is a New Zealand wide event of giving to LGBTTQIA+ projects, community groups, and not-for-profit organisations. 

GiveOUT Day is a global phenomenon — and is now in New Zealand!

We’re very excited to announce that the Rainbow NZ Charitable Trust successfully launched GiveOUT Day in New Zealand in 2022.

GiveOUT Day is grateful for the support and endorsement of some very high-profile allies. Their endorsement and assistance with helping spread the message about the inaugural GiveOUT GiveOUT Day was launched at the GiveOUT Gala, hosted by Phoenix Cabaret. The event on the 19th of October, 2022, was a great success! Thank you to everyone who supported the charity auction, sponsored a corperate table or bought an individual ticket to the event!

On October 19th 2022, Rainbow New Zealand Charitable Trust held the Gala Launch of the inaugural GiveOUT Day NZ at Phoenix Cabaret on Auckland’s iconic K Road. GiveOUT Day was opened at 7:00pm that evening and raised a phenomenal $57,000. All funds are for distribution to the 2022 Participating Charities, and the Trust’s Community Grants and Tertiary Scholarship Programmes.

GiveOUT Day 2022 was made possible by Silver Sponsors Kiwibank and Southern Cross Health Society and Bronze Sponsor PWC, with support from Aurecon and Microsoft. The enthusiastic also include represenatives from GiveOUT Day Participating Charities, Auction Donors, the National Party, and other VIPs including a live streamed message from Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

GiveOUT Day Ambassadors Nikki Kaye and Louisa Wall provided invaluable Support and promotion for the fundraiser, and also appeared via video link.
