Choose a project and organise a staff day. For example the staff of Newcastle Permanent have for the last 3 years offered a team of their staff day to volunteer on a CityServe project. The projects that they have worked on have included painting Newcastle SLSC (2013), Kotara Park Sporting Facility (2014) and planting seedlings in Lambton Park (2015).


A great way to sponsor is to donate goods that are needed for projects to happen. Donate or discount resource: paint, brushes, ladders / scaffolding and catering items.

Of course a great method of sponsoring is financial donations.  This can be used to resource projects, help gather volunteers, promote CityServe and resource the vision.
