Call for community event sponsorship applications

Applications for sponsorship from community groups and event organisers are now being received by Hume City Council.

Council already sponsors a wide range of community event favourites – including SunFest 2019, Sunbury Agricultural Show and the Sunbury Christmas on the Green Festival – as well as newer festivals on the events calendar such as the Hmong New Year Festival and Hume Diwali Mela in support of a culturally vibrant and connected community.

Sponsorship arrangements can help to offset the costs of the staging of an event or activity and can be either financial (cash) or in-kind (products and/or services).

Any proposed event or festival must take place in Hume between 1 July 2020 and 30 June 2021, and the sponsorship application must be received by 31 October 2019 for consideration as part of the 2020-21 financial year’s budget process.

Sponsorship opportunities are considered in terms of how they meet key selection criteria, aligned to the themes of Hume Horizons 2040, as well as Council’s strategic priorities and its core values of social justice, sustainability and commitment to Child Safe Standards.

Before you apply, please read our sponsorship policy. You can also find more information in this Frequently Asked Questions document.

If you need any assistance with your application or have further questions, please contact or phone 9205 2200.
