Central Highlands Water provides sponsorship to successful applicants based on two criteria: amounts less than $500 and amounts more than $500.

We will consider sponsoring events that have:

  • Benefits to Central Highlands Water
  • Plans to achieve objectives
  • Defined target audience group
  • Specific achievable outcomes
  • Monitoring/evaluation plans

Sponsorship funding will generally not be provided for events that do not meet our sponsorship guidelines.

How to apply

We'd be delighted to consider your organisation’s application to sponsor your event or program.

To apply for support through our community investment program, please:

  • Review our sponsorship guidelines
  • Download an application form and email it to us or post to:

    Communications & Engagement Team

    Central Highlands Water

    PO Box 152

    Ballarat VIC 3353
  • Attach any additional information
  • Submit your application.

Lodgement of an application acknowledges acceptance of our framework and criteria.

Our support is not a general endorsement by either Central Highlands Water or the State Government, and that the benefits of any support must not be promoted or publicised in this way.

Support in one year or event does not guarantee on-going support for future events.

All applications will be reviewed according to our sponsorship criteria and social strategy principles.

Applications must be submitted at least 60 days in advance of the date of your event otherwise they will not be considered. Due to the large volume of applications we receive, applications are assessed on a monthly basis, two months in advance. Please ensure you allow enough time for the preparation and submission of your application.

We will acknowledge receipt of your application within three working days. This will provide further information about when your application will be assessed.

Submission of an application does not necessarily mean that sponsorship will be granted.
