Become a Corporate Partner.
Our branch offers exclusive opportunities for organisations to become involved in one of our major programs, the University Scholarships program for disadvantaged students (or those who propose to work with disadvantaged children on graduation) at Southern Cross University and at The University of New England. These Corporate Partnership donations are fully tax deductible (see Taxation Advantage below).
How will the fees be used?
Corporate Partnership donations will be directed to our Lord’s Taverners (Northern NSW) University Scholarship Fund, which is used exclusively to finance our undergraduate scholarship at Southern Cross University and at The University of New England. Corporate Partners’ donations will be the major component of this fund, and Corporate Partners will be clearly identified through all publicity!
What is Lord’s Taverners about?
Our organisation was established by a group of thespians as they enjoyed an ale and watched cricket from the Tavern at the Lord’s Cricket Ground in London to encourage and promote participation in sport, particularly by youngsters, the disadvantaged and those with special needs. We raise funds for coaching and the provision of sporting and academic facilities and opportunities enabling those involved to become proficient and knowledgeable in their chosen fields. At the national level, we support blind cricket, indigenous cricket, deaf cricket, and intellectually impaired cricket.
Membership of Lord’s Taverners is open to all who support its aims and objectives and have an affinity with sport. Members enjoy various privileges, such as early ticketing to special events (at reduced prices).
What does the Northern NSW branch do?
Lord’s Taverners Northern NSW Branch was officially launched in September 2009. At the grass roots level, we conduct Twenty20 cricket competitions for Years 7-10 at North Coast schools and an intensive sports camp for disadvantaged youth. Our visits to Tenterfield, helping to re-establish cricket there, have become an annual event. We also provide financial assistance to deserving young people who might need opportunities to pursue their sporting dreams.(Check a full list of our functions on our Home Page.)
Very importantly, we also fund a scholarship at Southern Cross University for either a disadvantaged student, or for a student who intends to work with disadvantaged youngsters.
What does Corporate Partnership mean?
Our Corporate Partnership Package, being offered to Northern NSW organisations, means that no particular person needs to be a designated member, but each corporate body will enjoy a package of members’ benefits. For a fully tax-deductible donation of $1000 per annum, you will receive two free tickets to events, plus full member rights for up to two (2) personnel or nominated guests . Higher donations attract greater benefits. As a corporate partner you’ll also receive recognition and signage space at all functions and all branch events. Promotional material and publicity for special events throughout the year will carry your name.
How will the fees be used?
Corporate Partnership donations will be directed to our Lord’s Taverners (Northern NSW) University Scholarship Fund, which is used exclusively to fund our undergraduate scholarship at Southern Cross University. Corporate Partners’ donations will be the major component of this fund, and Corporate Members will be clearly identified through all publicity!
Because we have a specific fund used for our Scholarship at Southern Cross University , we have been granted Deductible Gift Recipient status by the Australian Taxation Office. So we are now able to issue you with a specifically annotated receipt for your donation, allowing you full tax deductibility.
