In this volunteer role you will research what funding grants are available and explore sponsorship opportunities. You will prepare and process applications - these might be based on previous applications or be entirely new ones based on your research. Securing sponsorship enables us to connect with other businesses and organisations at a local and regional level, and is another area of potential support that we would welcome your ideas on. Finding sponsors to support the purchase or lower the cost of uniforms would make a big difference to our members.
The Sponsorship / Grants Officer is directly responsible to the President of Mercury Bay Athletics Club and members of Mercury Bay Athletics Club. This role has real impact through sustaining and growing our athletics club.
