SERVICE ONE has a long tradition of supporting our local communities through sponsorship funding and added support. As you can imagine, we receive hundreds of requests each year. While we do our best to support what we can, we have a responsibility to our Members to ensure we:

  • get value for money
  • achieve positive outcomes for SERVICE ONE – whether this is helping to build our brand equity and helping us tell our story as we aim to Do Good and/or promoting the products and services we offer, and/or
  • align with organisations, clubs and associations with similar values to SERVICE ONE.

As such, we ask that any requests for sponsorship keep the following guidelines in mind:

  Sponsorship guidelines

To be considered for sponsorship, your event or organisation should:

  • pride itself in the work that is carried out resulting in positive public feedback
  • be willing to work closely with the SERVICE ONE marketing department in order to produce effective leveraging strategies
  • provide assurance that no SERVICE ONE competitor will be involved in the activity (this includes all financial and banking providers), and
