Sponsorship opportunities for community

A DOCUMENT outlining annual sponsorship opportunities in Douglas Shire will help businesses plan for their future community involvement.

The Douglas Shire Council Sponsorship Prospectus has been produced to encourage participation with Council-run events and projects.

It seeks to provide information on how to become a sponsor and encourage the community and businesses to present their own projects that Council may be able to assist with.
