Community value

SRW supports strong communities across our region through sponsorship and participation in community projects and activities which complement our role as a rural water corporation.

Our sponsorship guidelines are closely aligned with the Victorian Government Sponsorship Policy.



SRW will consider sponsorship requests from not-for-profit groups:

  • based in the southern half of Victoria, or
  • whose activities cover communities in the southern half of Victoria
  • to assist in disaster recovery and relief efforts in our region, or
  • whose activities are water-related (in Australia, or overseas where relevant)

They should be involved in activities which help to strengthen local communities; promote sustainable environmental practices, or educate on water-related topics, especially rural or non-urban water use.


SRW offers the following types of sponsorship:

  • Community support – sponsorship for community groups, charities, appeals and events
  • Corporate support – sponsorship of relevant organisation events or activities such as newsletters or conferences
  • Staff support – sponsorship of staff involved in charitable events or extraordinary not-for-profit personal endeavours


We do not sponsor the following:

  • Commercial organisations
  • Advertising organised by a commercial organisation
  • Any activity unrelated to those mentioned above
  • Any organisation which passes the sponsorship onto a third party
  • Political parties; or,
  • Any group or individual who may be subject to SRW regulation or inspection.

Southern Rural Water acknowledges and recognises Aboriginal people as the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the land and waters on which we work and live, and we respect their deep and ongoing connection to Country. For more about the First Nations peoples on whose Country we work, click here.
