Queensland Rail transports many thousands of people to destinations all over Queensland. Every day we provide a connection for people with communities and places.
We employ around 7,000 Queenslanders and cherish a heritage that mirrors the history and growth of our state.
Through sponsorships we strive to continue making a positive contribution to the lives of Queenslanders by supporting causes, events or other activities that Queenslanders are passionate about.
We engage in community and commercial sponsorships, staff fundraising activities and provide in-kind support for many causes and initiatives. We look for relevant partnerships that underpin our iconic position within Queensland and strengthen our relationships with key communities.
We have established the Queensland Rail Community Partnering Program to provide sponsorship support for local community based initiatives up to $5,000.
Queensland Rail receives many requests for sponsorship. Unfortunately for varying reasons we are never able to fulfil all requests so our Sponsorship Guidelines have been developed to guide sponsorship seekers in understanding Queensland Rail’s sponsorship objectives and developing proposals that may meet them.
Please note we prefer as much time as possible to plan for our sponsorship activities and so all applications for sponsorship support must be submitted at least eight weeks prior to an event occurring.
To apply please complete an application form for either the Community Partnering Program (PDF, 179KB) or General Sponsorship (PDF, 179KB). This will enable us to conduct a timely, balanced and equitable evaluation of all sponsorship proposals we receive. We understand you may wish to provide us with your own specific proposal and you are welcome to attach that proposal to the completed Application Form.
As a Queensland Government Owned Corporation we view sponsorship as a commercial transaction that requires a positive return on investment and so are unlikely to make donations or grants except in special circumstances.
