If you wish to request sponsorship support from The Standard please fill out the application form below.

Sponsorship applications are considered equally, based on The Standard sponsorship objectives as outlined here.

There is a genuine, audited cost to The Standard for sponsorship support that limits the number of requests that we can commit to. Therefore, unfortunately, we are not able to assist with every request we receive, even if the request fits within our sponsorship objectives

Please note: Applications must be received at least 6 weeks before the date of your activity or event. Also, it may take up to 4 weeks for your application to be assessed. A response will be sent to you once your application has been evaluated.
