The Rainbow New Zealand Charitable Trust offers organisations and individuals who are interested in supporting the LGBTQI+ community in New Zealand, an opportunity to partner with us as we work to achieve our objectives.

The Trust Will:

  • make decisions and distributions of sponsorship funding as most needed and beneficial
  • provide an easy way for people to support individuals and groups in the LGBTQI+ communities
  • provide validation for Rainbow Tick certified organisations' annual audit requirement to provide meaningful ongoing support to the LGBTQI+ community
  • provide public and community recognition of Sponsors’ support.

What We Fund:

The Trust has three main Grant envelopes available each year, open for both individuals and organisations to apply:

  • Tertiary Scholarships
  • Community Support
  • Community Development
  • We also maintain an Emergency Fund to enable us to respond to urgent time-critical situations.

Supporting Sponsorship Options

Event Sponsorships

The Trust holds high profile fundraising Events and welcomes Financial or Service Sponsorships. Our Events are professionally managed and attract large audiences.

Options for Sponsorship vary by event and will be presented to Trust Supporters in a timely manner.

Service Sponsorships

The Trust welcomes any non-monetary donations that could be supplied to the Trust itself or to organisations in the community.

Examples are:

  • Administration
  • Accounting
  • Banking
  • Events (Hospitality and Facilities)
  • IT Software Support
  • Telecommunications
  • Transport

Supporting Sponsors will receive recognition for any funds or services provided. Acknowledgement will be profiled clearly for your level of support on the Trust website, on our Facebook page, and in our media releases and LGBTQI+ community communications. In the case where funds are targeted to a particular community organisation through the Trust we will work to ensure that agreed recognition of that support will be provided by the recipient. We work closely with all Sponsors to achieve these outcomes.
