About our charity partnerships

We produce some of Australia’s largest and most successful events and appoint charity partners for Sydney New Year’s Eve, Sydney Christmas and Sydney Lunar Festival.

We’re seeking charity partners for Sydney New Year’s Eve 2023, Sydney Christmas 2023 and Sydney Lunar Festival 2024, with the option to extend for one year for each event.

Our charity partners can leverage their brand through the event while carrying out fundraising and promotion. The charity partner will also be promoted through the event’s media and marketing campaigns where possible.

We encourage applications from a range of charities and may approach potential candidates as part of the expression of interest process. An evaluation panel will review all applications and present its recommendations to Council. Once selected, we’ll prepare letters of agreement.

Any appointment of a charity partner for an event is on a non-exclusive basis. We may also support an additional specified charity through an event in case of a humanitarian crisis.

We reserve the right to proceed without appointing a charity partner for any of the events. We also reserve the right to not proceed with any of the events.


Selected charities will enter into a charity partner agreement.
