Community sponsorship

We understand the role water plays in the health and liveability of our customers, community and environment.

Apply for a community grant

We don’t take our bays for granted. That’s why we’re proud to be supporting our community and environment by making important community projects and initiatives possible. 

If you’re part of a community or charitable organisation you could be eligible to apply for between $500 and $10,000 to support the health and liveability of Port Phillip Bay or Western Port, and the areas nearby (like beaches, creeks and wetlands).

The grants are funded by a commitment we made to support local communities impacted by sewer spills.

In the last 12 months, beaches were closed in Mount Eliza, Mornington, Black Rock and Brighton due to sewer spills. We encourage groups in and around these areas, and right across our service region, to apply.

We’re looking forward to working together to create places for our community to work, play and enjoy Melbourne’s world-famous liveability.

Applications are now open.

Hydration stations

To help support our community and promote tap water over bottled, we have two stations available to be used at local community events.

If you’re holding a not-for-profit event within our service area, we may be able to provide water for your patrons. If you’re not sure if your event is in our area use the Victorian Water Corporation Locator Tool.

Do we need to pay to use the Hydration Station?

We'll consider sponsoring all not-for-profit events, however these will be limited.

Community events that don't meet our criteria for sponsorships or sponsorship isn't available will be charged a hire fee of $710 including GST.

Note: No sponsorship of the hydration station will be available from June through to August.

Sponsorship and merchandise requests

Unfortunately we’re currently not looking for new sponsorship opportunities.

We don’t generally supply water bottles or other items as giveaways for community events. As an organisation we want to be as sustainable as possible and this does mean producing not a lot of merchandise.

For any questions, contact us on sponsorships@sew.com.au
