Sponsorships of up to $2,000 are available to fund a range of association activities such as workshops, conferences, and events.
As part of our ongoing commitment to support our incredible South Australian education community, we’re offering associations registered with Educators SA a chance to receive funding for professional development.
Why are we offering the sponsorship program?
Education is in our DNA. In fact, we were established by teachers for teachers and continue to support the SA education community with:
- exclusive Education Community Banking Benefits^ that are available to anyone working within education and their immediate families, and
- a dedicated team that works directly with education employees, so they can get the best out of their banking.
But we still want to do more. That’s why we’re putting funds where they really matter - in your capable hands, assisting South Australian education associations. We know the level of hard work and dedication that an association needs and we want to support you so you can keep supporting our community.
