Apply for sponsorship

Maitland City Council is open to granting sponsorship funding both cash and in kind to community and industry groups, events and organisations that fit within the guiding principles of the Sponsorship Policy, and are located, operating or providing direct benefit within the local government area.   

To ensure maximum community benefit, funding of any one initiative/organisation is restricted to one source of funding from Council i.e. an applicant is not eligible for sponsorship if, for example, the applicant has received funding via another funding source of Council.   

If you are interested in seeking sponsorship from Council, contact sponsorship@maitland.nsw.gov.au briefly outlining your proposal and it will be reviewed by the relevant department, who will then contact you to discuss the below sponsorship process and provide relevant application forms.

Sponsor Maitland events

Working in partnership with Maitland Events is an effective way to align your business with a quality product that benefits Maitland and the broader community.

Our events are known for providing quality entertainment, with strong recognition in the community, and have a loyal following that allows them to grow year after year.

Each event comes with a professional marketing campaign, which ensures both the event and event partners receive prominent, prolonged exposure. A dedicated Events Officer will work with you to ensure maximum return on your investment.

Sponsor a Flagship Event

Maitland's flagship events include Maitland's Australia Day celebrations, Hunter Valley Steamfest, Riverlights Multicultural Festival, Bitter & Twisted Boutique Beer Festival and New Year's Eve festivities.

These events are a key attraction for the city and are popular with both residents and visitors, attracting over 130,000 people and annually injecting $20 million into the local economy.

Contact our Events team for information on sponsorship packages.
