Community Sponsorship Program 2019/2020

The Community Sponsorship Program enables Council to work in partnership with our community to build a vibrant, connected and liveable Hawkesbury.

Council’s Community Sponsorship Program provides financial assistance to support Hawkesbury based community organisations or individuals wanting to undertake activities that address key strategies and directions within Council’s Community Strategic Plan.

Council has a developed a Community Sponsorship Strategy (PDF - 6.3 MB) that sets out the framework by which Council considers funding applications lodged under the Community Sponsorship Program.

The Community Sponsorship Strategy provides details of eligibility criteria and the criteria applied to assess Community Sponsorship applications.

It is recommended that all applicants review the Community Sponsorship Strategy, particularly the Eligibility Criteria and the Assessment Criteria Matrix prior to submitting a Community Sponsorship application Form.

Council can also support Registered Charitable Organisations to promote signature events and/or national/state-wide funding appeals. To learn about Council’s approach to supporting these initiatives please review Council’s Guidelines for Working with Charitable Organisations (PDF - 157KB)
