SA Water sponsorships open for 2016-17


SA Water sponsorships open for 2016-17

SA Water is seeking applications for programs or events to sponsor in the next financial year.

SA Water's Senior Manager of External Relations David Coombe said the sponsorships are a way to promote SA Water's work while also giving back to the South Australian community.

"We're looking for community and industry groups that complement our business and our values and whose events or programs have a focus on the environment, sustainability or water-related issues," David said.

"Metropolitan and regional organisations are encouraged to apply and both financial and in-kind support can be requested.”

Sponsorships are assessed against the following criteria:

  • alignment with SA Water's vision and strategic plan
  • clear relation to SA Water's business
  • proven reach to a significant audience
  • tangible benefits to the South Australian community.

"SA Water has a strong history of supporting the South Australian community and we're happy to continue this support through our sponsorship program," David said.

“Our portable water trailers, the Quench Benches, are also available for free hire all year-round to community events with more than a thousand attendees.

“These specially-designed Quench Benches have in-built drinking water fountains and last year were used at events such as the Credit Union Christmas Pageant and RSPCA Million Paws Walk.”

Groups and programs sponsored in 2015-16 include Surf Life Saving SA, the Adelaide Film Festival, Water Industry Alliance and Port Lincoln High School’s Tod Reservoir fishing project.

Applications for the 2016-17 period close on March 31 and must be submitted using the form available on the SA Water website.

Successful applicants will be informed in July 2016.
