PLEASE NOTE: OUR SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM FOR THE REMAINDER OF 2020 HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO COVID19.
Warburton and Yarra Junction Community Banks are committed to supporting the local Community and one of our initiatives is our Community Sponsorship program.
SINCE OPENING OUR DOORS IN 2000, WE HAVE SUPPORTED MORE THAN 200 COMMUNITY GROUPS, ORGANISATIONS AND PROJECTS WITH SPONSORSHIP FUNDING AMOUNTING TO MORE THAN 4.5 MILLION DOLLARS
A cornerstone of the Community Bank model is the sharing of profit with the community. With this in mind we invite community groups, to apply for sponsorship.
We currently offer three Sponsorship Rounds per year – February, June and October.
In 2020 our closing dates for applications for each round are:
- Midnight, Sunday 16 February 2020 – CLOSED
- The Round for June 2020 has been CANCELLED DUE TO COVID 19
- The Round for October 2020 has been CANCELLED DUE TO COVID 19
All categories of community groups are invited – sports and leisure, education, culture and the arts, health and social, children and youth, the elderly to name a few. And sponsorship can be applied for to support an upcoming event, activity or project that your organisation is planning.
Sponsorship proposals are open to organisations (not individuals) and are assessed on their capacity to benefit the community and to promote the Warburton and Yarra Junction Community Bank branches.
Applicants must have an ABN or have a Project Partner who holds an ABN, and sponsorship cannot be provided retrospectively.
