PRIDE Fund

PRIDE Fund

The PRIDE Endowment Fund that will provide support and a positive profile to the LGBTQIA+ community, forever.

Making everyone feel welcome and reducing inequality has been identified by the residents of Greater Ōtautahi Christchurch as a key priority.  In response The Christchurch Foundation has established this fund.

The aim is to continue to grow the fund, investing the capital and utalising the resulting interest (income) to support the Rainbow community.

Annual applications will be called for in January, for projects that meet one of the following criteria:

  • showcase our city as a place where the rainbow community are embraced and celebrated
  • and/or support at risk members of the community

A distributions committee, made up of Foundation and PRIDE representatives, will be established and announced.
