BMD is committed to supporting local communities and proudly support organisations each year through sponsorship, events and membership.

Although BMD has continued to keep Australia moving through the COVID-19 pandemic, it has had a far greater impact on many not-for-profit and grassroots organisations, which is why BMD has established a COVID-19 Recovery Community Assistance Program.

This program has committed a total of $150,000 in one-off sponsorships, donations and in kind-support to help organisations within communities. Funding of up to $5000 per organisation is available in areas of sports and recreation, arts and culture, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, health and wellbeing, environment, education and community initiatives.

To raise awareness about this program, share this information prior to Monday 23 November (as applications close Friday 27 November 2020).

The recovery from COVID-19 will require a significant collective response from governments, businesses and communities across the country. The BMD COVID-19 Recovery Community Assistance Program is their commitment to do their part to support their communities and work through these unprecedented times together.
