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.
