SPONSORSHIP

Bodhi Collective is a family owned and operated business on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia.  We’ve already received a high volume of requests for donations and support from a wide variety of worthy challenges and causes.  Whilst we’d love to support every organisation that makes a request, sadly this isn’t possible. 

Each sponsorship request will be carefully assessed to determine if it meets Bodhi Collective’s sponsorship, marketing and community objectives and won’t proceed with requests that don’t fit within these objectives. In addition, budgetary constraints limit the number of opportunities that we can undertake on an annual basis.  Bodhi Collective aims to support our planet and community at all times, however as requests are increasing in number, it has become necessary to apply a more thorough and efficient process.

We recognise the important role we play as a member of the community and support selected activities and organisations that benefit the community in which we operate. Activities and organisations are supported through working in partnership with the broader community for the long-term benefit of the yoga and wellness community

All sponsorship applications will be evaluated according to the criteria set out below and must be submitted via email provided by the 30 June of each year to hello@bodhicollective.co 

SPONSORSHIP POLICY

In the context of this policy ‘sponsorship’ is defined as the provision of goods or services in exchange for advertising, marketing and promotional opportunities. ‘Donation’ is defined as the provision of goods to a registered charity where a receipt for the value of goods can be provided for taxation purposes.

Responsibility for co-ordination of sponsorship solely lies with the owners of Bodhi Collective and with recommendations from employees.  Each proposal will be assessed on a merit basis according to the criteria set out below.  Once a year Bodhi Collective nominates their preferred and most aligned charities for the year ahead. This means that if a proposal for sponsorship is to be considered a submission is to be prepared addressing the criteria and submitted with a six week lead time to assess the application.
