The Greater Narellan Business Chamber is an organisation made up local business identities. We are a “not for profit” organisation.
Our membership base reaches far and wide and we are fortunate to have within our organisation several registered charities and other “not for profit organisations” listed as our members.
The Greater Narellan Business Chamber seeks to act as a good corporate citizen at all times and as such has previously undertaken small scale contributions and sponsorships as part of their partnership with the community. However, as requests have increased in number, it has become necessary to monitor those requests.
This policy has been established to address all requests on a case by case basis, based on the assessment criteria contained in this document.
Each request will be carefully assessed to determine if it meets The Greater Narellan Business Chamber sponsorship, marketing and community objectives. Consequently we are unable to proceed with requests for support that do not fit within these objectives. In addition, budgetary constraints limit the number of opportunities that we can undertake.
All sponsorship applications will only be considered if the minimum requirements are met and will be evaluated according to the criteria set out below and must be submitted using the Sponsorship/Donation Request Form.
This policy does not apply to charitable events owned byThe Greater Narellan Business Chamber (for example Christmas In Narellan), or charities/organisations that are a large contributor or service provider to an event owned byThe Greater Narellan Business Chamber for example Narellan Rotary or Lions.
