Grants Funding & Sponsorship


Once you have planned everything within your event you may have noticed, hosting an event can be quite expensive.  

It is always beneficial for Event Organisers to explore the possibilities of gaining local sponsorship from businesses or organisations, philanthropic funding or apply for Federation Council, State or National grants. There are many options available to explore and support you in your event planning and staging and Council has tools to assist you.  

Council hosts the Federation Council Community Grant Program that opens twice annually, one round opens in February and another round opens in August.

Council has also partnered with GrantGuru to provide the Federation Council Grant Finder resource which is a free online service and platform to find relevant funding for your events. 

We have created a quick guide to how to best find relevant funding for your event.
