As a community-focused organisation, Bay Venues recognises that we can help local not-for-profit organisations, schools, kindergartens, and community improvement groups achieve their objectives and goals via the sponsorship of entry tickets to our venues – with these tickets then being used for prizes or as incentives/giveaways. As such, sponsored tickets are being made available to be used as fundraisers; they are not to be used as discounted entry to our facilities. As such, tickets cannot be used en masse by one group for gaining entry to a facility.
To optimise sponsorship, it is important that we manage the process in a controlled manner so that as many organisations as possible can benefit. Hence the creation of this policy and application process.
Our objective via sponsorship is to support activity that directly benefits Tauranga Moana and Western Bay of Plenty communities, and to encourage long-term relationships with these communities. In general, we do not support “out of region” organisations or events.
