Sponsorship Program

The revised Sponsorship Program incorporates funding opportunities for events that complement the focus areas identified as priorities for the Strathbogie Shire Council.

An annual program of events within the Shire adds significantly to the social health of the community, assists to raise awareness of the destination to identified markets, provides an economic benefit to local businesses and directly assists to increase the average length of stay of visitors.

Opportunities to attract or develop an event to a level of regional and state significance could be supported by Strathbogie Shire Council relevant to available resources.

Applications are sought for events that:

  • Promote community engagement and participation.
  • Support gender equality and social inclusion and improve accessibility.
  • Contribute to building healthy and vibrant communities.
  • Increase economic development, tourism and the visitor economy.


The 2019-2020 Sponsorship Program is applicable to those events that will take place in the financial year from 1 July 2019 - 30 June 2020. This is a rolling program conducted over the financial year period, and applications will be accepted until the allocated funding has been distributed.

The 2019-2020 Sponsorship Program Guidelines can be found here
