Community Partnerships Program

For over 20 years, SA Water has supported a wide range of programs, organisations and events across South Australia. In 2018, we have launched our Community Partnerships Program, which replaces our previous sponsorship scheme. The new program  focuses on grassroots community events and programs, run by not-for-profit organisations that have a clear link to water or water usage, and demonstrate a strong alignment with our vision of delivering world class water services for a better life.  

This year SA Water is proudly partnering with the following organisations through our Community Partnerships Program:

  • Trees For life Inc
  • Rosetta Street Greening
  • Conservation Volunteers Australia
  • Somerton Surf Life Saving Club
  • Mount Gambier Motor Cycle Club
  • Our Coast Our Mission

  • Uniting Country SA
  • Surfing South Australia Incorporated

Applications for our Community Partnerships Program have closed for this year. To apply for the program when it reopens in February 2019, please ensure you've read through the new application criteria.
