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 as much as the dollar value of the donation: you are giving us encouragement
- Diversity and honest acceptance make communities stronger. If, like we do, you believe hate, fear and stigma harm families and neighbourhoods as well as LGBTIQ+ people, your donation is a direct practical way to stand up for your belief.

Making a regular donation
Regular weekly, fortnightly or monthly donations give OUTLine a real cash-flow boost. Two easy ways are:
- set up an automatic payment to our bank account 01 0249 0178488 00 in the amount and frequency that suits you best;
- talk to your work payroll administrator about the payroll giving scheme.
Employees now have a great way to donate regularly to OUTLine through your work payroll. There is a system for employees to get money deducted from their pay 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 maximum was $630) (Dominion Post, July 3, 2010). This is a fantastic way to give regularly to OUTLine.
Give A Little – diversify your generosity
OUTLine has a fundraising page on the Give A Little website. If you would like to donate using a credit card or debit card, this is OUTLine’s option for you.
From OUTLine’s Give-A-Little page you can make a one-off donation to OUTLine, or link us with your own personal OUTLine fundraising campaign.
If you have a passion for supporting diversity and you want to do even more than make your own donation, now you can set up your own fundraising project supporting OUTLine. This is an amazing way that you can pitch to your own social media and email networks. Not only can you raise funds, but in the process you raise awareness in the community of OUTLine and LGBTIQ+ issues.
Or just ask everyone you know to check out OUTLine’s Give-A-Little page and, well, give a little.
Remembering OUTLine in your will
If you want to support OUTLine and now is not the right time to make a donation, think about including a gift to OUTLine in your will.
How you support anyone or any organisation in your will is your private business. You are welcome to discuss with us confidentially anything about leaving OUTLine a gift in your will, but that’s up to you. We want to be clear that OUTLine is deeply honoured by every personal gift, and especially those given by a will.
We can provide you with any information about OUTLine you might need for your will. The most important information is our legal name and registration details, at the top of this page.
If you do not have a will and want some basic impartial information, the Citizens Advice Bureau has a useful guide. The New Zealand Law Society has a much more detailed guide to download. A lawyer or other will expert helping you will explain the different ways you can support OUTLine with a gift in your will. They can also discuss with you the consequences of placing restrictions on a gift in your will.
We see a gift in a will as a legacy where part of you can keep working towards a world where diversity is treasured and where all people live free from fear, discrimination and violence. Your privacy is important to us. However if you are comfortable telling us , we want to do our best to honour your gift by knowing a bit more about you and your dreams for a better world.
Whatever your situation, now is a good time to get started
There are other ways to help OUTLine meet the costs of providing our service. We encourage you to be creative with your skills, opportunities and networks to make a difference to our work.
