Through our partnerships with a number of corporate and community organisations, voyage sponsorships are available for applicants who require assistance raising their voyage fare.
Each Leeuwin voyage sponsorship has different criteria and eligibility requirements aligning with each sponsor’s guidelines.
Voyage sponsorships generally cover a generous portion of your voyage fare, leaving you the responsibility to fundraise the balance – the “gap payment”.
All Leeuwin sponsorships have something very important in common – they are offered through the generosity of companies, community organisations or individuals to enable you to join a development program like no other in Western Australia.
All Leeuwin Ocean Adventure partners and sponsors recognise the value of voyage participation to young people’s learning and development. A voyage on Leeuwin will change you – the way you look at yourself and others, building skills for your future, whatever path you hope to pursue and wherever you go.
To improve your eligibility for a Leeuwin voyage sponsorship supported by one of our sponsors, you must demonstrate how you plan to raise the “gap payment”.
With perhaps little or no experience in fundraising, you may find this process daunting. But we are here to help! You will be surprised how rewarding it is, and how generous people and organisations can be, once they hear about your fundraising project.
The process is simple: read our fundraising tips and use our fundraising plan template here.
