SPONSORS

How do I become a sponsor?

Thank you for enquiring about this. We have 3 levels of sponsorship available; Silver ($5k) , Gold ($10k) and Platinum ($20k). Please send us your details

What do I get as a sponsor?

Aside from the warm and fuzzy feeling you get from supporting struggling stood-down hospitality workers, you will also get a prominent logo on the HelpOutHospo website, mentions in all press briefings and releases, the option to post your own videos featuring your products (so long as they align with the video submission criteria). There will also be opportunities to partner in all further HelpOutHospo events and associated distribution channels.

What is the duration of sponsorship?

At least until the pandemic is over – but there is an argument to be made that, at any one time, there are many people across the breadth of hospitalty that need financial assistance and support. So we may just keep it going to help them…

How does my sponsorship money get used?

All monies received goes into a dedicated account for HelpOutHospo and then used to provide financial relief for those hospitality people in need across our partner network.

DONORS

Is my donation tax deductable?

Unfortunately not. We are not a registered charity so therefore it is not deductable.

How much of my donation will go to helping hospitality staff?

Outside of associated costs of developing and managing the websites, all profits will be used to provide financial relief to Hospitality staff who have lost their jobs from partner venues.

APPLICATIONS FOR FINANCIAL AID

Am I eligible for financial aid?

If you have been stood-down or lost your job owing to Covid closures then you may be eligible for a one-off financial aid payment.

Ultimately each application is assessed on it’s merits. You will have to provide evidence that you were employed by a restaurant, bar, pub, hotel etc that has been forced to wither close – or severely reduce labour owing to Covid.

How does financial aid get decided and distributed?

Staff from venues who have lost their jobs, or who have had their hours severely restricted owing the pandemic, are eligible to apply for financial relief through the contact form on the HelpOutHospo website. Payouts come in the form of a one-off gift to the person submitting for aid. We recommend providing relevant bills or statements as evidence.

Where does the money go?

The profit from HelpOutHospo all goes to support struggling Australian hospo workers.
