Invitation to Partner

Propel aims to develop mutually beneficial partnerships within the business community as part of a broad approach to financial sustainability. We seek to engage partnerships whose actions complement our organisational values and strengthen the overall youth arts landscape in WA.

Propel is seeking strategic and ongoing financial contributions towards the development of new initiatives, ongoing costs of our current programs, and to further bolster our core operational capacity. Propel is also seeking in-kind support for services such as insurance, travel, information technology, banking and printing as well as access to business expertise, resources, networks and distribution channels.
