Aboriginal Community Sponsorships

Are you part of a local sports team, dance group, fishing club, or community space looking for support?

To support Aboriginal community programs and to help spread the word about the shared journey to Treaty in Victoria, the First Peoples’ Assembly of Victoria has a community sponsorship program ideal for local sports teams and other clubs and associations.

Things to consider before applying

  • Do you run an Aboriginal club or association or do have a significant number of First Nations participants or supporters?
  • Can the Treaty for Victoria logo be included on your materials or merchandise, e.g. sports uniforms?
  • Can the Assembly’s engagement team hold an info stall at one of your events?
  • Can your group share information about Treaty on its social media channels and via its email newsletters?
  • Would your club be willing to display physical signage at its facilities?

If you answered ‘yes’ to at least three of the above questions, we’re keen to hear from you about how we can help with sponsorship.

When is funding available?

We have two set funding rounds each year.

Our June funding round opens 27 May and closes 1 July.

Our October funding round opens 10 October and closes 31 October.
