Event Grants and Sponsorship Program

Council’s Event Grants and Sponsorship Program provides support to events that foster economic, community and/or cultural development, and prioritise positive environmental outcomes.

The program is available to not-for-profit and commercial event organisers that hold an event in the Surf Coast Shire, and offers four event funding streams:

  • Community Event Grants
  • Boutique Creative/Special Focus Event Grants
  • Tourism Event Grants
  • Event Sponsorship

How to Apply

Details on each funding stream, including eligibility criteria and application process, can be found on the Event Grants and Sponsorship Guidelines.

The Surf Coast Shire Events Policy should also be read, in conjunction with the Event Grants and Sponsorship Guidelines.

Note: The next funding round will be held in February 2021.
