We will consider one application from any group within a financial year. Our financial year runs 1 April – 31 March.  

Yes, the contract will always have the GST included. This means when you are making an application, please share the total dollar figure required and add 15%. 

Please get in touch with your local NBS Branch if you have any questions about your application. 

Now that I have applied – what happens next?

We’ll be in touch with the outcome of your application as soon as we can.  

We do get a large number of requests each week, so some applications can take up to one month to review and process. If your request is time-sensitive, this will be taken into consideration.  

If your application is successful, you'll be issued with a contract. Once the contract has been signed, you are invited to issue us with an invoice for the agreed sponsorship amount.
