We proudly sponsors a number of key regional events each year to support our community.
Alongside our sponsorship of events such as the MidCoast Science and Engineering Challenge, the Taree and District Eisteddfod, Tastefest, the Lakeside Festival and Gloucester's Chill Out Festival we also run an annual community sponsorship program to assist local groups and organisations.
This is a highly competitive program providing limited funds for community based projects or events.
MidCoast Water encourages applications from organisations with projects which will provide lasting benefit to the community, or for organisations needing seed funding for new initiatives that have the potential for ongoing benefit.
To be eligible for funding under the Community Sponsorship Program, groups must be:
- Based in an area that receives a service from MidCoast Water
- Providing a community service/ activity in a voluntary capacity
- Managed by a community-based committee
- Not for profit
- Constituted or incorporated
Applications outside the annual round of funding may be considered at the discretion of the General Manager, subject to availability of funding.
The 2017-18 community sponsorship round has now closed.
