Waterford Community Sponsorship and Grants Program

Home » Waterford Community Sponsorship and Grant Program

AVID Property Group (AVID) is proud to support a wide range of not-for-profit, industry and community organisations across Australia through its Community Sponsorship and Grants Program.

Here at AVID, we love supporting local programs, events, schools and clubs. Over the past 3 years, we have been a proud supporter of a number of programs and businesses in New South Wales, including Take 3 for the Sea and Thornton Public School.

AVID’s Sponsorship and Grants Program is divided into three categories: Build, Connect, Activate.

Build < $50,000

Build grants support large projects or campaigns, with potential national reach through shared promotional activity. An example of a Build sponsorships is our partnership with Take 3 for the Sea.

Take 3 for the Sea
AVID is proud to be supporting the Take 3 for the sea movement. Take 3 is committed to reducing plastic pollution through education and public participation.

In collaboration with Take 3 co-founder Tim Silverwood, AVID hosted a series of Take 3 events across Australia’s eastern seaboard in 2018/2019.

By enabling local communities to get behind the Take 3 initiative, AVID supports Take 3 in its mission to inspire genuine change, creating a cleaner environment for future generations.

Connect < $10,000

Connect grants help to create lasting community partnerships and connections in and around the wider Waterford community. Previous Connect sponsorships in New South Wales have included Thornton Public School.

Thornton Public School
AVID’s support of the Thornton School Band has allowed the school to purchase much needed instruments to support students in hands-on learning.

Participation in the music program at the school has increased significantly and the student’s confidence has improved by performing at events in AVID’s New South Wales communities.

Activate < $5,000

Activate grants support local initiatives at a grassroots level, with projects delivered within Waterford. Previous Activate projects in New South Wales have included subsidised fitness classes for local residents with a local Fitness business.
