Bette Armstrong and Bea Arthur.

Armstrong & Arthur Charitable Trust for Lesbians

The Armstrong and Arthur Charitable Trust for Lesbians was established in 2001 by the late Bea Arthur for the benefit of lesbian community groups in the Wellington region. The Trust is named to recognise and remember the 57 year relationship of Bea and her partner the late Bette Armstrong. The Trustees invite applications for funding assistance, as grants, for projects and activities that will benefit all or part of the lesbian communities in the Wellington region. Visit the Trust website www.armstrong-arthur-trust.nz for information about how to apply for grants, and how to donate or make bequests to the Trust.

Application forms and guidelines are available from the Trust's website.


Leonie's email list

This is a service for distributing your notices to the lesbian community. To join the list, email leonies.email.list@lesbian.net.nz Please include contact details for several referees from the local lesbian community with your request. Leonie will get in touch with the referees as it is important to keep the list safe.
If you were once on the email list but have not received any messages for a long while you may need to rejoin.

Once you are on the list, you can send email notices to the same address for distribution. Any notice that will help or inform us as lesbians is sent out.


Support Kiwi groups supporting LGBTIQ youth

Let's support the groups and organisations that support the youth in our communities - they are always short of $$$ for their valuable work. Most are registered charities and have Donate pages on their websites.
