A few words about our sponsors:
ASB joined the NZ Falcons as our principal sponsor in May 2014 and since then, has provided invaluable support to the team, not only through its financial contribution but with ASB staff supporting the team at various events and providing logistical support for Big Gay Out and the Pride Parade. ASB also sponsors the NZ Falcons’ summer touch rugby team.
ASB is the first New Zealand bank to commit to formal benchmarks around lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex (LGBTI) inclusion in the workplace through participation in the Rainbow Tick programme. The Rainbow Tick is an external audit and quality improvement programme designed to make an organisation a safe, welcoming and inclusive place for people of diverse gender identity and sexual orientation.
The NZ Falcons are delighted to be working with ASB as they head into their 2015 season culminating in the Purchas Cup hosted by the NZ Falcons and supported by ASB in September 2014.
Love Your Condom
Love Your Condom (“LYC”) is one of the original sponsors of the NZ Falcons, providing financial support and hosting various NZ Falcons events through the 2013 and 2014 seasons.
LYC is the New Zealand Aids Foundation’s social marketing programme for gay and bisexual men. It is a community-focused programme designed to create a condom culture across Aotearoa New Zealand.
The NZ Falcons have worked with LYC at various events, including Big Gay Out and marching with the LYC float at the 2014 Pride Parade with the aim of raising awareness of LYC’s goals.
GABA has provided financial assistance to the NZ Falcons since their inception in 2013 and with their support the NZ Falcons were able to purchase their first team kit.
GABA is New Zealand’s largest LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex) membership organisation offering you a professional social network. GABA brings its members a selection of networking and social events. Through these events, the member and organisations within GABA enjoy the atmosphere created by and for our members. GABA works for the community by raising funds for The GABA Charitable Trust which are then distributed as Grants, Scholarships and Awards.
GABA’s mission statement is “In Community There is Strength” and the NZ Falcons are proud to work with GABA towards that goal – the NZ Falcons could not be where they are without recognition and support from the LGBTI community.
