2024 Donations and Sponsorship Program Open!

Applications will be accepted from Thursday 1 February and will close on Friday 15 March 2024.

This is an exciting opportunity for our vibrant community to request assistance from Council. Get ready to showcase your projects, initiatives, and events that can benefit our Snowy Monaro region.

This program operates on an annual timetable and is offered once a year.

Key dates for 2024:
  • New application documents available on our website from 15 December 2023 
  • Support and quotes from Council from 15 December 2023 to 29 February 2024
  • Applications will be received by Council between 1 February and 15 March 2024 
  • Council meeting to decide successful applications in May 2024 

Please ensure you include all supporting documents when you submit your application.

Key information:
Contacting council

You must allow 10 working days for Council staff to respond to your request.

Requesting a waiver

If your application involves requesting a waiver of fees or charges associated with a Council facility or service, it's essential to reach out to the relevant Council department sooner rather than later, to obtain a quote. This quote must be included with your submission before the closing date to be considered.

Renovating a council asset

If the project is to renovate or make physical changes to a Council asset (including Crown land managed by Council) you must obtain Council’s consent as the owners of the land. A copy of the written response from the relevant Council officer complete and the Facility Implications Form(PDF, 1MB) must be attached.
