RAINBOW Fund

RAINBOW Fund

The RAINBOW 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 utilising 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 distribution committee, made up of Foundation and LGBTQIA+ representatives, will be established and announced.
