A key purpose of The Co-op is to support the cultural well-being of its community. Our sponsorship program provides funding for organisations that promote physical, mental and spiritual health through a broad range of endeavours. We believe that participation in cultural activities improves the quality of life for those involved, their families and their friends.
Sponsorships are not the only way to raise funds. Our Mitre 10 store provides organisations the opportunity to conduct weekend barbeques that can generate considerable surpluses.
Dates for 2020 are as follows:
Round 1: Opens Monday 3 February – Closes Sunday 8 March 2020.
Round 2: Opens Monday 3 August – Closes Sunday 6 September 2020.
The “Apply Here” link below will be active during these dates.
Each year, due to the nature of seasonal activities, The Co-op conducts 2 rounds of sponsorship generally in March and September.
Sponsorship is in the form of gift cards and store sponsorship only (please see ‘How we sponsor’ for details). Through our 8 stores, Barossa Home Living, Barossa Betta Home Living, Barossa Mitre 10, Fresh Foodland, Barossa Toyworld, Orchard Lane, Rod & Spur, and Barossa SportsPower Superstore & Surf, The Co-op can sponsor merchandise, equipment, uniforms, food, drink and all you need for events and functions.
Each round is submitted to The Co-op Board for their decision in March & September of each year. Successful applicants will be advised of the outcome shortly thereafter. Applicants can apply for both rounds, but ultimately the event/activity/project between both rounds needs to be distinctly different.
