Grants and Sponsorship

Grants, Donations and Sponsorship

Georges River Council's Grants, Donations and Sponsorship programs support initiatives and projects that build the social, cultural, environmental and economic life of the Georges River area. Through these programs, Council partners with the community and businesses to further the actions, strategic directions and vision of Council's Community Strategic Plan.

Council's Grants, Donations and Sponsorship Policy provides a framework for grants, donations and sponsorship requests made to Council. The Policy guides the application process, allocation and evaluation of funding to address community needs under Section 356 of the Local Government Act 1993. 

Enquiries about the Grants, Donations and Sponsorship Policy can be directed to Council’s Community Development team on 9330 6400.


Georges River Council values the important work undertaken by local community groups. Council offers funding support for local organisations through a range of grant programs:  

Event Sponsorship

Council welcomes requests from the community to support community events and programs. The Grants, Donations and Sponsorship Policy outlines the way Council provides financial and in-kind support for these activities. If you would like to find out more about Council's support for community run events, please email


Throughout the year Council hosts a range of Major Events for our residents to come together and participate in, including cultural festivals, celebrations and award ceremonies.

While hosting these activities we also collaborate with a number of local businesses that sponsor our events in the local area. Incoming sponsors assist us with the resources to improve the quality of high profile events, as well as attract visitors, enhance our reputation and foster economic development. Benefits of partnering with Council include brand exposure, greater access to reach your target audience and an alternative method to market your business, which can be less expensive than typical marketing avenues.

Sponsorship also enables businesses to build public awareness of their understanding and support of community needs.

Council offers a range of incoming sponsorship packages to appeal to a variety of organisations for the following annual events:
