Sponsoring local events and initiatives

Southern Rural Water is proud to be the lifeblood of the agricultural economy of southern Victoria, and one way it supports the communities it serves is via sponsorships. 

Whether it’s community events, fundraisers or charitable projects, we are keen to financially support initiatives that enhance community cohesion and social connectedness – the things that bind farming communities.  

If you are a local community group, charity or not-for-profit in a rural or regional area with a worthwhile initiative or project, then consider applying for a sponsorship via us – we are especially interested in hearing from groups in southwestern Victoria. 

In the past year, we sponsored a charity initiative in Ballarat, school fundraisers in the Gippsland farming communities of Boisdale and Heyfield, and supported community events in Maffra, including the local Carols, Mardi Gras and Christmas festivals.
