Despite having to postpone its annual November fundraising auction, the GABA Charitable Trust has been able to support 19 different groups with grants for the upcoming Auckland Pride Festival.

Gresham Bradley, GABA Charitable Trust Chair, says the Trust had a limited amount available this year because of the postponement of the November Auction. “The Trust decided to fund Entry fees for the Parade and to support the Festival applications with the most merit and need for support. We collaborated with and secured advice from the Julian and the Pride organisers on this.” With a total of 21 grants awarded, Bradley says there were only a very small number of applications that the Trust was unable to fund. “The Trust is now looking forward to the rejuvenated Rainbow Auckland Auction later this year where we will again raise funds to continue supporting the Community.” Body Positive $200 (parade) Brass Bandits $200 (parade) CarribeaNZ Southern Stars Steel Band $200 (parade) Dykes on Mikes $1000 EquAsian $200 EquAsian $200 (parade) Impostar $1000 Marching Boys $200 (parade) NZ Prostitutes Collective $200 (parade) Outline $200 (parade) Rainbow Families $200 (parade) The New Normal $1000 We Don't Have to be the Building $1000 Whānau Uenuku $200 (parade) Whati te Waka $200 Whati te Waka $200 Woof $1000 Theta Project $900 Youthline $200 (parade) Ze $1000 Hamilton Pride $200 (parade)
