Awarding Sponsorship Program

The Sponsorship Program helps turn big ideas into reality. It provides financial support to assist in the delivery of initiatives that provide a measurable return on investment such as increased economic benefit or profile for the Central Coast region.

The Program supports high quality events and projects that contribute to the vitality and culture of our region by raising the region’s profile; promoting social inclusion; supporting the local economy and places; creating employment opportunities; encouraging visitation and supporting tourism and business initiatives that deliver economic benefits.

The Sponsorship program has three funding tiers:

  1. Hero / Signature Initiatives – negotiated amount
  2. Regionally Significant Initiatives – up to $50,000
  3. Business Development Initiatives – up to $20,000

Key dates
