Lots of people contributing financially in whatever capacity does add up and enables us to really have an impact on our regional communities as well as our regional parklands. Financial partners sometimes also volunteer as part of the partnership, building a level of ownership in the park or project through this process.
There are lots of different options:
One example of a potential financial partnership is our partnership with the regional Hume Bank. For the past eleven years, Hume Bank (formerly the Hume Building Society) have offset their vehicle emissions by participating in one morning of planting each September with staff, family and friends around the Gateway Island bush park.
The Hume Building Society sponsored water / chemical trailer spends considerable time on the roads driving to and from bush parks on a daily basis, providing visible recognition of this valuable partnership. Hume Building Society also sponsored the “Rivers to Rolling Hills” booklet and our popular parklands map brochures.
