Do you know a community group that could benefit from Simplot's support?
We are focused on Contributing to Feeding Our World by Bringing Earth’s Resources to Life, and this includes our passion for supporting our communities too.
For over 25 years, Simplot and the brands you love and trust, have been synonymous with the locations within which we operate. In continuation of our commitment to providing support to local organisations, our annual Community Sponsorships are open again for application, with sponsorships valued at up to $2,500. It’s our way of saying thanks to our local communities for having us in your backyard.
To be eligible for financial support, these local community organisations must be close to one of our major sites (Mentone, Echuca, Kelso, Bathurst, Devonport, Ulverstone and Wesley Vale). Previous applicants and recipients are welcome to apply.
We will be continuing to look to supporting organisations that make a real and long-term difference to communities within which we operate. That tangibly link to our purpose, mission, and values, and align with one of the following categories:
Food Security: Initiatives that help to provide reliable access to safe and nutritious food for people in need.
Health and Wellbeing: Initiatives that promote healthier living, including nutrition, sporting and positive mental health.
Environment: Organisations that focus on programs for environmental sustainability.
Please ensure you answer all queries to be considered for our sponsorship.
