Sydney Showground is offering a unique incentive to its clients that offers a helping hand to regional and rural New South Wales.
In celebration of the bicentenary of the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW (RAS), Sydney Showground will donate up to $25,000 to the RAS Foundation (RASF) on the client’s behalf depending on the size of the event.
Money donated by Sydney Showground will be directed to the RASF Community Futures Grant or Rural Scholarships programs, providing funding to either bring a community project to life or assist students in regional and rural areas to achieve their career goals through higher education.
“In celebration of the RAS’ bicentenary this year, we have decided to bridge the gap between our award-winning event venue and our organisation’s role as custodians of Australian agriculture,” said Andrew Roberts, Sydney Showground’s director of sales and marketing.
“Not many people realise Sydney Showground is run by the RAS’ with the intent of investing profits from each event back into agriculture and our rural communities. This incentive is a great way for us to share the incredible work the RASF does and provide an opportunity for our clients to give back whilst also running a successful event.”
