Horizons Regional Council receives dozens of proposals every year. Due to limited resources available for sponsorship we have developed a set of guidelines to assist in making our requirements clear to potential sponsorship seekers and to help sponsorship seekers present their proposals clearly.

Unfortunately we will not consider proposals in the following categories:

  • Local sports organisations;
  • Charitable fundraisers;
  • Requests that benefit an individual person or family;
  • Events in areas outside our Region;
  • Religious activities;
  • Spot prizes or raffles; and
  • Political candidates or organisations.


We assess all sponsorship proposals to see if they fit our sponsorship guidelines. Proposals are considered on a case by case basis, and must be submitted in writing to be considered. We generally require a minimum of three months lead time for all sponsorship requests.

Please read our guidelines before creating your sponsorship proposal, to see whether your opportunity matches our sponsorship goals. The guidelines also outline what information we need to see in a proposal. 

Please send all sponsorship enquires attn: The Media and Communications Manager.
