Community Information

Community Sponsorship Program 2012/2013

Round 1 of the program is currently open and applications will be received until the close of business, Friday 29 June 2012, for funding early in the new financial year.

The program covers any Hawkesbury based community organisation, business or individual wanting to undertake activities that address the needs of the community as identified in Council’s adopted strategic, community, cultural and other plans. It also covers individuals who are representing the Hawkesbury at a state, national and international sporting competition or cultural event.

Hawkesbury City Council will assess the applications and provide sponsorship to support activities or events which will benefit the residents of the Hawkesbury within the available resources.

The purpose of Council’s sponsorship program is to enable community groups and individuals to access resources that would otherwise be unavailable to them. These resources could include:

* Financial - in terms of direct funding
* Human - in terms of advice, skill and expertise of Council staff
* Material - in terms of goods and services provided directly by Council as an ‘in-kind’ contribution

If you would like more information on sponsorship opportunities or to apply for funding, please contact Hawkesbury City Council's Community Facilities and Grants Co-ordinator Trisha Sundin on Ph: (02) 4560 4576 or Patricia.SUNDIN@hawkesbury.nsw.gov.au.

Applications close Friday 29 June 2012.
