Individuals and not-for-profit sporting and community groups are invited to apply for funding through Council’s Community Sponsorship program to deliver events and activities that support social and community outcomes.
The biannual program enables the delivery of vibrant community events and supports individuals and groups to become ambassadors for the region whilst representing Baw Baw Shire locally and across the Country.
As part of the 2022 sponsorship program, over $49,000 was awarded to support the various individuals, groups, and ambassadors across the Shire. Some of the 2022 recipients included:
“Each year we see so many of our local clubs, groups and ambassadors benefit from this program” says Baw Baw Shire Mayor, Annemarie McCabe.
“Last round the program assisted 11 not-for-profit groups and 4 individuals and clubs to achieve great things that might not have been possible. This alone is a testament to the value of this program in providing a helping hand for our community”.
Applications are now open for four weeks and will close at 12pm on Monday 3 April 2023.
*Eligibility criteria applies.
Applications are to be made via appointment. Community groups and individuals seeking funding for their next community event or ambassadorship are encouraged to contact our Social and Community Planning team on 1300 229 229 during business hours or email email@example.com to make an appointment.
