Sponsorship

The Gunnedah Shire Band (GSB) is a highly successful, well presented not for profit organisation which fosters values that are highly sought by many organisations. GSB relies heavily on community support on an ongoing basis to support its programs.

Gunnedah Shire Council has a long association with the band. The generous support of the council has ensured that GSB has always had access to excellent hall facilities to accommodate practices and performances. The council supports the band each and every year in many ways and is recognised as our major sponsor.

Our 2017 Platinum sponsors are Keatings Bus Service, Gunnedah Leather Processors, Boggabri Coal and ACS Equip. All platinum sponsors have donated $1000 or more to the band and the band are very grateful for their support.

 

 

Other current significant sponsors include:  Whitehaven Coal, Arts NSW, Lear and Smith.

The Gunnedah Shire Band travels across Australia to compete. In addition, the band performs at important events in our community, many of which attract significant exposure. We have developed sponsorship packages for businesses that may be interested in supporting the band. We feel that we have a strong offering of benefits to a potential sponsor. For more information on what sponsorship opportunities are available, please read our Sponsorship Packages information or contact us via email, admin@gunnedahshireband.com.au

Community Involvement

Parents and friends of the band contribute to the success of the band by encouraging and supporting band members, assisting with band functions and fundraising. Furthermore, they ensure that the band focuses on their performance by providing logistical support in terms of travel, accommodation, and meals. Through this support, many band supporters have found a sense of fulfilment and enjoyment, and have formed life long friendships.

Fundraising

The band relies heavily on fundraising to ensure that the cost for band members is minimised so that cost is not a barrier to involvement and musical progression.
The band hall is available for hire for a range of functions for which we provide full catering services. Licensed bar facilities are also available at the venue.

We are privileged to have both fixed and mobile commercial catering services, together with years of experience and skill in this field. We use our facilities and skills to provide services back to the public. These services range from catering for conferences, parties, and weddings at the band hall as well as at other venues.

The band continues to provide a food stall at the annual AgQuip field days in August. We are also involved in supporting community events such as the Gunnedah Show and the Wean Picnic Races.
