Water for Community Sponsorship Program

Applications are open until Wednesday 6th October 2021.

Community groups have an opportunity to apply to install a permanent drinking water station sponsored through Wannon Water’s Water for Community program.

The sponsorship program helps to fund accessible water refill units in public spaces, supporting hydration for the community, and providing environmental and financial benefits. The program aims to:

  • Encourage people to reuse and refill their water bottles
  • Educate people on ways they can contribute to a cleaner and healthier future.

Each year we have a limited number of permanent drinking water stations available with priority given to community-based, not-for-profit organisations within our service region who have an Australian Business Number (ABN) or are an incorporated body.

Visit https://www.wannonwater.com.au/stronger-communities/sponsorship/drinking-water-stations.aspx for more information, guidelines and application.

WTF - Where's the Funding?

Fundraising is the lifeblood of most community organisations, yet it's an often-neglected task. Most organisations draw the majority of their income from just one or two sources, and that's a dangerous strategy. If one of those sources dries up, you could quickly face a budget black hole

"Where's the Funding?" is an affordable online compact course run by Our Community designed for grassroots fundraisers. Drawing from the Seven Pillars of Fundraising, this ICDA course will help participants identify all the many sources of income available to their organisation and give them confidence to start drawing from each of them.

The course costs just $55 and is delivered via a smart learning management system which allows you to complete the course at your own pace and at a time and location of your choosing.
