Youth Service Resources – Funding

It can sometimes be a big stretch for small or regional communities to find the finances to cover a Big Air School Event. We get that, and while we do try and run the program ‘on a shoestring’ it can be very expensive to take our gear and staff to events – and lets not even think about the crazy insurance costs that we have to do this stuff.

However, we’re a pretty resourceful bunch and we often work with clients to secure sponsorship or grants from local or national partners to assist with the cost of these events. We’ve compiled a list of potential funding providers below – and we think you’ll find them pretty useful because we’ve vetted these to make sure they’re sympathetic to youth activity programs.

Please contact us if you’d like some help getting a sponsorship package together for a Big Air School event.
