Support the Diverse Church NZ Trust

Diverse Church NZ Trust is registered charity (CC57366) with the aim to support LGBTTQIA+ people in Aotearoa. 

We rely on the generosity of our allies and supporters to fund the events and campaigns we run.

Many of our community do not have access to the funds required to attend out annual conference, and we want to ensure that money is never a blocker for them. We do this by providing scholarships to the conference, flights and accommodation.  

Your help is greatly appreciated.

As a registered charity, any donations are eligible for the government rebate, and we are happy to provide a donation receipt. 

Donations can be made directly to our account: Diverse Church NZ, 38-9022-0460252-00. Please use your name as a reference if you would like a receipt and email
