Incoming sponsorship

We have an Incoming Sponsorship Policy. The policy enhances the delivery community services and facilities by raising additional funding. This funding may be used to supplement assets, program delivery, increase exposure or cover operational costs.

The Incoming Sponsorship Policy and procedure provides a centralised, ethical and coordinated approach to seeking, acquiring and managing incoming sponsorships and partnerships. It relates to all Council-run and managed assets, programs, venues and events where Council directly receives monetary or in-kind support from a sponsor/partner.

Kids Weekend

City of Gold Coast invites one radio organisation to become an event partner of Kids Weekend, providing support through commercial advertising and promotion. The three-day event is a chance for the Gold Coast community and visitors, to experience Surfers Paradise through beach and children themed activities including movies on the beach. Kids Weekend is a free (non-ticketed) family event that attracts 5400 attendees a day and is very popular with young families.

Please put forward your proposal by Friday 24 May 2024.
