Community Grants Document

Events need volunteers and assistance from local community organisations to operate successfully.

Our events encourage Community Groups, Sporting Organisations and Schools to raise money through
community service. Funding is available for all Community Groups, such as:

✓ Schools
✓ Environmental Groups
✓ Youth Workers & Youth Services
✓ Scouts
✓ Welfare Groups
✓ SES, Rotary, Lions
✓ Educational, Training
✓ Sports Clubs & Sporting Organisations

Over past events, we have formed an association with volunteer organisations such as Cudgen Surf
Life Saving Club, Pottsville Men’s Shed, Tweed South Rotary, Schools, Marine Rescue and Triathlon
Clubs. More recently the local SES and TAFE have also been involved and some of these bodies
receive reimbursement for various services or manpower which they are providing.

The demands of delivering a premium standard event in a competitive market place continues to
place increasing demands on the Local Management Committee and previously smaller groups’
contributions have not been readily recognised.

Accordingly, the event Strategic Partnering Board have agreed that an equitable means of returning
some investment back into collaborating community groups is vital for the event and the community
and this scheme was created in 2012.


All community organisations, groups and clubs are very welcome to nominate to be part of an event.
This is usually done via the event website under the
volunteers tab or just with a phone call or email.
Each group of volunteers needs to assign a group leader who
will work with the event manager to organise dates, times,
rosters, training, and contact details.
The group will agree which duty they wish to perform and
the event manager will provide details on responsibilities,
tasks and link the group into the event communications. This
should all be done three to four weeks in advance.


Based on the number of volunteers attending on the day – the following scale applies:
*Please note that these amounts are for a standard volunteer day over 8 hours. Donation amounts
for a shorter time period than this will be negotiated.

The competitors love friendly, loud and engaging volunteers – it helps to take their mind off the pain of racing.
