In 2023, as a part of the development of financial sustainability for the organisation, we have developed a Sponsorship Package.
Sponsors can choose between sponsoring community house for between $50.00 – $2,000.00 or a higher amount if they so wish.
We have established a tiered system of ‘reward’ for sponsorship according to this pricing structure.
Our package outlines the areas/categories that sponsors can choose for their sponsorship to support, or they can opt in for the “sponsorship with the lot” which allows the Committee and Coordinator to determine where the sponsorship funds are most needed to support the organisation as a whole.
Sponsorship categories include: Operational costs, Food Bank, Programs and Services, Volunteer program and support, Community events and workshops and Community Garden Hub.
The State Government Neighbourhood House Coordination Program provides funding for 25 hours of Coordination per week (paid Coordinator).
All other operational, program and service funding we must source from grants, fundraising and donations.
This is why diversifying our income streams is so important.
Our sponsorship package will provide the opportunity for greater community involvement in supporting the community house. This is not soley a financial mechanism, but a community building one. “For community, by community”.
