Grants, sponsorship and donations

We offer a wide range of funding opportunities to help stage festivals, events and projects which benefit our communities.

Most of our grants are open annually from January–March, others are open all year round until the funds have been spent. Please check individual programs for further details and open and close dates.

For the 2019–20 financial year, through our various grants and sponsorship programs, we awarded more than $600,000 to support over 300 local groups, not-for-profit organisations, schools and businesses.
