What is auspicing?

To ‘auspice’ means to provide support, sponsorship or guidance.

Sometimes funding can only be provided to organisations that deductible gift recipient (DGR) status meaning that often community groups and sporting clubs are excluded from applying.  Utilising auspicing means your organisation doesn't have to give up on the idea of seeking funding where a DGR status is required.  An auspice agreement will be required to define the roles and responsibilities of each group.
