PORT STEPHENS KOALAS ARE SEEKING LOCAL BUSINESS SPONSORS

Posted on: April 20th, 2018 by admin No Comments

It is with great pleasure we announce that sponsorship proposals are now being rolled out to local businesses in the Port Stephens area.

We would be honoured to have local businesses supporting us and it is our hope that ALL businesses on the Tomaree and Tilligerry Peninsulas will sign up as Sponsors for one of our six sponsorship levels.

We believe the sponsorship levels are affordable for a variety of small, medium and large local businesses.

We ask that you please consider supporting Port Stephens Koalas – a NOT FOR PROFIT organisation as we rely on sponsorships and donations to help save Koalas.

Sponsorship Levels can be viewed by visiting our website https://portstephenskoalas.com.au/sponsors/ where businesses/individuals can select a Sponsorship Level and make payments online.

We are dedicated to ensuring future generations of Koalas and hope that Port Stephens residents and businesses will support us in achieving this.

If you have any queries or would like to discuss any of these matters further, please contact PSK Director, Anita Marshall on 4919 0478 or via email amdirector@portstephenskoalas.com.au
