The RNZCT has been supporting NZ's Rainbow Community since 1999. We fund LGBTQI+ organisations, projects and initiatives nationwide.

We have a long history of giving back to the LGBTQI+ community. On 9 November 1999, the GABA Charitable Trust was established to separate GABA’s charitable work from its regular activities as a membership and community focused organisation.

Since its founding, the Trust has donated over $300,000 to fund a broad range of LGBTQI+ organisations, individuals, projects and initiatives.

The Trust formally changed its name on 9 January, 2018, becoming the Rainbow New Zealand Charitable Trust. The new name adopts the now universally understood term 'Rainbow' as reflecting the LGBTQI+ communities, better communicates the national purpose of the Trust, and more closely aligns the Trust’s name with Rainbow Auckland (formerly GABA) and the many other Rainbow organisations in New Zealand.

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. The Fund is available on application to individuals and institutions for the explicit purpose of supporting the development of activities in the education, health, welfare, cultural and support services for the benefit of the LGBTQI+ community of New Zealand.

Over the past decade, the Trust has donated close to $300,000 to fund a broad range of LGBTQI+ organisations, individuals, projects and initiatives.

Seven years ago, the Trust also created the Tertiary Scholarship, which assists young LGBTQI+ people through their first year of full-time tertiary study.
