Help us reach our target of $300,000 by pledging your support for the Sydney St Patrick's Day Parade. All donations, large or small are gratefully accepted.
We have a long way to go, so all donations are welcome.
As with nearly all St Patrick’s Day parades held around the world, Sydney’s parade and family day is run as a not-for-profit event with sponsorships, memberships, grants and donations funding the festival. There are a number of sponsorship packages available, from Major Sponsorship of the parade itself to the Irish Bachelor of the Year fundraising event held in February each year.
Australia has a particularly strong Irish heritage, with hundreds of thousands of Australians claiming Irish decent, celebrating St Patrick’s Day. Added to this is the new generation of Irish living and working in Sydney, many skilled migrants on resident’s visas. This year saw a record number of Irish citizens granted residential status in Australia, due to the high education and skills level.
Catherine Crosse, President of the St Patrick’s Day Committee, Sydney said: "The event goes from strength to strength each year and increased numbers in attendance mean additional expenses such as more security and infrastructure at the Parade and Family Day itself. In the past we have had such sponsorship as Guinness, Qantas, Sinapore Airlines.
"We would now like to hear from organisations wishing to register their interest in sponsorship opportunities. We have a dedicated, experienced committee including a professional and experienced marketing and public relations function to support sponsors. We work with all sponsors to tailor packages that ensure the partnership is mutually beneficial. Whilst we will consider all one year sponsorship deals, we are interested in discussing longer term sponsorship options such as three year terms, with interested organisations."
