The City of Sydney produces some of Australia’s largest and most successful events.

We are seeking official charity partners for these 2015 events:

  • Sydney Chinese New Year
  • Art & About Sydney
  • Sydney Christmas
  • Sydney New Year’s Eve

The City’s charity partners receive the opportunity to provide on-site event activities, including fundraising. Information about the charity partner will appear in City of Sydney’s marketing and event materials. There will be public speaking opportunities and some promotional opportunities through our other event partners.

The City of Sydney may make its own approaches to charity partners as part of the expression of interest process. An evaluation panel will review all submissions and present its recommendations to Council. Once selected, the City of Sydney will prepare letters of agreement. The City of Sydney reserves the right to proceed without appointing a charity partner for any of these events.

These must include a response to the selection criteria below, and be no more than three A4 pages and no more than 2MB file size. We expect to make appointments for charity partners by July 2015 for one or two years.
