Sponsorship

The financing of many Men’s Sheds will be a big problem, and since it is a charity, we hope to raise funding by means of Government Grants and Private Sponsors.

Private  Sponsorship

The Directors of private companies have often expressed the desire to our members that they wish to put something back into the community, therefore they willingly provide assistance to the Men’s Shed, who they see as providing a very useful purpose in the Seniors community. Tax Deductible gifts to the St George Men’s Shed are seen as a win-win-win-win investment in that a) They feel good about their giving; b) They get a tax deduction for their company; c) Our publishing of their sponsorship is good advertising for their company within the St George community; and d) One of these days they can join the Shed and enjoy the health benefits during their long years of retirement.
