We run many activities which can offer sponsorship opportunities, from large community events to cultural and sporting programs.

Show your support for the team who keep our beaches safe. Support is always welcome for essential safety equipment like jet skis, rescue boards, Lifeguard vehicles and more.
Wollongong loves its sport! With more than 40 sportsgrounds across the city, we can connect you with opportunities to improve your local ground, or back your favourite sporting code.
While we welcome the support of local businesses, we have to be a little picky about our sponsors.
We look at sponsorship proposals to make sure they won’t create a conflict or affect us doing our duty in serving the community.
