The Co-op Sponsorship Program The Co-op believes in making our community a great place to live. By giving back to active organisations, we believe this support will be recycled throughout the community, helping it and the people in it to grow, develop and prosper. Each year, The Co-op supports the community through our Cash for Schools program, weekly Mitre 10 BBQs and a range of other initiatives. The Sponsorship Program is another way The Co-op gives back to our members and community. In 2018 there are changes to the program. Due to the nature of seasonal activities, The Co-op will open 2 sponsorship rounds throughout the year: • Round 1: Opens: 15 January and closes: 9 March 2018 o Activity seeking sponsorship to commence March - September • Round 2: Opens: 31 August and closes: 5 October 2018 o Activity seeking sponsorship to commence October – February Sponsorship in 2018 will be in the form of gift cards and store sponsorship only. Through our 6 stores, SportsPower Superstore and Surf, Toyworld, Barossa Betta Home Living, Barossa Home Living (Womenswear, Menswear & Home), Co-op Fresh Foodland and Mitre 10, The Co-op can sponsor merchandise, equipment, uniforms, food, drink and all you need for events and functions. Each round will be submitted to the Co-op Board for their decision in March & October 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 need to be distinctly different.
