Once you become a ‘Business and Organisation’ Member of Culture Bank Wollongong, we will in effect salute you! You will be one of the growing numbers of locals, who recognise the importance of living in a vibrant culturally active community. Together we have already been making a real difference, and we will continue to grow from strength to strength. Our plan is to have at least 2000 members, which will mean an excess of $240,000 to give to inspiring cultural projects each year. Imagine that! The more businesses and organisations we have on board, the higher this amount will go. We need more local entrepreneurs to support culture – it matters, in so many ways… We also know that a creative and vibrant community is good for business.

You choose how much you want to be involved.

Like all our members, you will receive invitations to decision dinners and to the events Culture Bank has financially supported.

The three level Gold, Silver and Bronze option for Culture Bank Membership entitles business and organisations to different things. Please see more details here.

  • You will receive monthly statements for tax-deductible purposes.
  • You can participate in deciding which local cultural projects receive our support by attending lively Together we share a great meal and discuss the funding applications, and vote on the projects that are submitted.
  • All members are invited via email and Facebook to attend the Decision Dinners (approximately 3 per year) and a new group of 9 members takes part on each occasion.
Please note: Memberships and payments can be cancelled at any time. However, our memberships are not refundable.

 

 

“Business owners go to films and enjoy small bars and live music so they’re benefiting from all this. If everyone gave a little bit, just imagine what we could afford and what a difference it would make.”

Wollongong Councillor Ann Martin

“Culture Bank funding was the difference between trying to spread word through a tangled word of mouth grapevine and being able to create an epic website with a cool little green man as our logo to really make our presence felt in the local community.”

Chloe Higgins, director of the Wollongong Writer’s Festival
