GRANTS AND SPONSORSHIP
WED Festival is an award-winning, community run event. In 2017 WED Festival won the Australian Event Award's Best Charity Event in Queensland and was a National Finalist.
But we can't bring this much-loved festival to the community without the support of generous donations, sponsorship and grants. From major sponsorship to sponsoring a specific area of the festival, there's something for everyone and we will work with you to ensure you get the most out of it.
Area sponsors are given the opportunity to market their area with their brand. Depending on the level of commitment, sponsors will have their logo used on the event poster and festival website. Areas you can champion include:
Plastic Free Champion + Waste Warrior
Community Action Sponsors
Why sponsor WED?
By supporting the award-winning World Environment Day Festival you will align your organisation with one of the biggest environmental charity events in Australia, gain exposure to tens of thousands of people in South-East Queensland, and reach a targeted and engaged audience. You'll also be helping to protect the unique wildlife and natural places of the incredible Sunshine Coast. It's a win-win!
MAKE A DONATION
As an individual you can make a huge difference by chipping in to ensure we can bring WED Festival to the community for free each year.
If your budget does not allow for cash sponsorship you don't have to miss out. WED is always interested in talking to organisations who can make an in kind contribution to the Festival. We seek prize donations for a raffle in exchange for acknowledgment throughout the festival. Get in touch here.
