The Auckland Pride Festival Trust is a non-profit organisation supporting the Rainbow (LGBTIQ) Community, and some of its activities include coordinating the Auckland Pride Parade and festival events in the broader context of building relationships and improving the lives of all Aucklanders, but specifically those connected to LGBTIQ communities.

Tamina Cunningham-Adams, a banking and finance litigation associate, approached the Simpson Grierson board with a proposal to provide pro bono support to the Trust, a proposal that was endorsed with enthusiasm by the board. Simpson Grierson is sponsoring the Auckland Pride Festival for the first time this year.

We were particularly impressed by a glowing reference supplied by David Coltman, co-chair of the Auckland Pride Festival Trust. “The guidance and support of Tamina has meant that we have been able to protect the interests of funders, our community and those volunteers who have contributed to bringing the celebration of our diversity back to the streets of Auckland,” he wrote.
