Who we sponsor

We’re proud to work with communities across greater Sydney to support their events and activities. 

Sponsorships and partnerships help us educate people of all ages about water, wastewater and our responsibilities to the environment. 

 

Orange van with washing machines inside

Meet Busby, our hybrid washing and shower van serving the communities of Western Sydney.

Cricket NSW

As Hydration partner of the NSW BluesNSW Breakers, Sydney Sixers and Sydney Thunder, we're highlighting Sydney’s drinking water. 

We're working with Cricket NSW to educate and encourage people of all ages to choose tap water over bottled water or sugary drinks whenever possible. After all, water is a healthy choice that's already filtered. It's the most affordable and sustainable choice for Sydneysiders and sportspeople alike.

Keep an eye out for us at the cricket and remember to BYO bottle and stay hydrated!

Orange Sky Australia 

Orange Sky Australia is the world’s first free mobile laundry service for people experiencing homelessness.

We’ve funded the purchase and fit-out of a bespoke hybrid shower and laundry van to help Western Sydney communities.

As the first van of its kind in NSW, and only the third in Australia, the van will play an essential role in providing access to basic hygiene. This will help restore dignity to those who are easily forgotten.

Many of our staff members are actively volunteering to help support the amazing work of Orange Sky. We encourage you to get involved and volunteer with Orange Sky Australia.
 

WaterAid 

WaterAid transforms lives by improving access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation in the world's poorest communities.

As Australia's largest water utility, we share WaterAid's vision that everyone, everywhere should have access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene.

We're pleased to be able to loan councils our portable water refill stations for community events.

Our fundraising and donations program helps staff give back to causes and charities close to their hearts.

We're proud to support over 120 Australian charities that our staff are personally passionate about.
We dollar match staff payroll donations and together contributed over $250,000 last financial year.
 

Emergency and disaster relief appeals

There are times when we help with disaster relief or emergency situations. This may mean:

  • providing hands on assistance
  • giving expert advice
  • supporting our staff to fundraise.

Sponsorship, donation and merchandise requests

We work proactively with communities to identify partnership and sponsorship opportunities that deliver value for money and benefit for our customers. 

For grassroots community and charity groups, applications for our annual Community Grants program open in May each year.

Our donation program is based around dollar matching our staff giving and we are proud to support over 120 charities each year. We use the Good2Give platform for our program, and charities are able to register here or contact Good2Give for more information.

We don’t produce a lot of merchandise because we are conscious of our environmental footprint, so we are generally unable to provide items for show bags or giveaways.

If you have any questions relating to our programs please email partnerships@sydneywater.com.au
