Sponsorships and donations

We believe it is critical for NQBP to support the social and economic development of the communities in which we operate.

Through our Sponsorships and Donations Program, we aim to build community capital by supporting projects, initiatives, and events that align with our strategic themes and values and which make a real difference to our communities.

The program comprises two categories - the NQBP Community Fund and Corporate Sponsorships and Donations.

Our NQBP Community Fund is an annual sponsorships program available to non-profit groups and organisations within NQBP's port communities of Mackay, Hay Point, Abbot Point (Bowen), and Weipa. Funding is available for projects, initiatives, and events that align with our strategic themes and values. We also aim to identify partnerships that embrace the principles of diversity and inclusion - e.g. gender diversity and First Nations Peoples. Applications for the NQBP Community Fund are now closed for 2023-24.

Our Corporate sponsorships and donations are direct partnerships that support:

  • corporate objectives including strategic themes and key projects
  • emergent community issues, and
  • targeted initiatives aligned to key stakeholder interests.

We work closely with stakeholders in each port community to identify relevant corporate sponsorship and donation opportunities.

We also proudly provide an annual donation to Stella Maris to assist them with operational costs associated with providing care for seafarers' spiritual, social, and material welfare across our ports.
