Help us, help others

Along with OUTLine’s real work of being there for people in crisis, we struggle hard to pay for a national free service to LGBTIQ+, their families and their allies in the community. Every call costs our callers some deep emotions… and costs OUTLine to fund.

OUTLine has a fundraising strategy to apply to some of the country’s biggest donors and engage with the business sector to meet our running expenses. But there are two great reasons why donations from amazing individuals makes a huge difference for OUTLine:

  • OUTLine is proudly a ‘people’ centred organisation, so support from individuals or families is worth far more than the dollar value
  • OUTLine has always managed to operate just sustainably enough, but our sector is not well funded and survival is measured less in years, than months and sometimes days. Your donation goes directly to the things we need to do to answer phones and give a patient ear… and give hope.

We welcome any donation, large or small, and a donation to OUTLine is NZ tax deductible. If you want to take the step of including OUTLine as a beneficiary under your will, please read a bit more about this option or visit your lawyer.

Payroll Giving – making a regular contribution

If you are an employee, a great way to donate to OUTLine  is through your regular payroll.  IRD allows employers to deduct donations from an employee’s pay which is then paid directly to the employee’s chosen charity.  Under the payroll giving scheme employees can claim one-third of every dollar they donate – businesses can claim 100% – up to the value of their total income, previously the total was just $630″ (Dominion Post, July 3, 2010).  This is a fantastic way to give to OUTLine.

Give A Little – diversify your generosity

OUTLine has a fundraising page on the Give A Little website. From that page you can make a one-off donation to OUTLine, or link us with your own personal OUTLine fundraising campaign. This is an amazing way that you can do something very valuable for OUTLine’s work, pitching to your own social media and email networks. Or just ask everyone you know to check out OUTLine’s Give-A-Little page and, well, give a little.

We welcome any donation you are able to make. All donations to OUTLine are tax deductible
