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 sponsorship has different criteria and eligibility requirements aligning with each sponsor guidelines. They may cover the voyage fare in full or in part. What all Leeuwin sponsorship have in common is that they are offered through the generosity of companies, community organisations, or individuals to enable you to join a program like no other in Western Australia.
To improve your eligibility for a Leeuwin sponsorship supported by one of our sponsor, you must demonstrate how you plan to secure funding towards your preferred voyage, and from other sources too. With perhaps little or no experience raising funds, 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 project, and how you go about funding yourself to join a Leeuwin Ocean Adventure voyage.
The process is simple: read our fundraising tips and use our fundraising plan template here.
