Sponsorship Program

The revised Sponsorship Program incorporates funding opportunities for events that complement the focus areas identified as priorities for the Strathbogie Shire Council.

An annual program of events within the Shire adds significantly to the social health of the community, assists to raise awareness of the destination to identified markets, provides an economic benefit to local businesses and directly assists to increase the average length of stay of visitors.

Opportunities to attract or develop an event to a level of regional and state significance could be supported by Strathbogie Shire Council relevant to available resources.

Applications are sought for events that:

  • Promote community engagement and participation.
  • Support gender equality and social inclusion and improve accessibility.
  • Contribute to building healthy and vibrant communities.
  • Increase economic development, tourism and the visitor economy.

Information sessions (details set out below) will be held in conjunction with those for the Community Grants Program and will discuss:

  • The changes to the Sponsorship Program
  • The alignment with the Community Grants Program and the application process
  • Overview of SmartyGrants application process
  • The Event Application process
  • Questions and Answers
