Community sponsorship

Did you know...

  • A litre of bottled water costs the same as 9,000 glasses of tap water.
  • There is a risk that there be more plastic in the sea (by weight) than fish by 2050.

At City West Water we want everyone to know the health benefits of staying hydrated, the environmental impact of single use plastic bottles and believe drinking water shouldn't cost the earth.

That's why we are always ready to support community events, functions and programs that celebrate our vibrant community. We do this by sponsoring events (giving financial or in-kind support) like charity gatherings or sports clubs events so that they may continue to support our community across Brimbank, Hobsons Bay, Maribyrnong, Melbourne (north of the Yarra River), Moonee Valley, Wyndham, Yarra and parts of Melton and Hume.

Get your application on time – do not miss out

Not surprisingly though, our community support is very popular.

We get lots of sponsorship applications and unfortunately cannot accept them all. So it is very important to get your application in well ahead of time.
