The Standardbred Association Queensland Inc (SAQ) is excited to launch its 2019 Corporate Partnership Program, which will assist in raising much-needed funds for SAQ’s Rehoming and Adoption Program and save even more Standardbreds following their harness racing career.

In 2002, SAQ started their Rehoming and Adoption Program, which was the first not-for-profit association in Queensland to focus specifically on retraining and rehoming retired racehorses. SAQ now rehomes between 80 and 120 Standardbreds each year after their career in harness racing - with the rehoming of the 1,100th Standardbred due to occur in the very near future.

SAQ President, Owanna Francisca, said the Corporate Partnership Program was a very important element to SAQ’s annual revenue stream and helps to raise money for the Rehoming and Adoption Program.

“To continue doing the important work that we do as a well-established Not-for-Profit providing a second chance for these wonderful horses, the SAQ sources grant funding and runs regular yearly events like the Track to Hack Series and our State Harness & Hacking Championships. We also partner with the business community in the form of mutually beneficial sponsorship opportunities” said Ms Francisca.

SAQ is building on the success of last year’s Program by expanding the number of partnership opportunities available and is now seeking new Corporate Partners to join the SAQ family in 2019.

SAQ Grants & Fundraising Office, Mark Hrycek, said “when you partner with SAQ, we ensure that the benefits don’t just flow to SAQ from your generosity. We implement strategies to provide your business and products with exposure into a key target market to help you build brand awareness, grow your customer base and/or increase your sales.

“While at the same time, our Corporate Partners know that their invaluable support is also helping to provide a life after racing for the many Standardbreds who come through our Rehoming and Adoption Program” said Mr Hrycek.

SAQ are keen to hear from any organisation interested in a small-investment/high-return Corporate Partnership opportunity that includes, logo/key message promotion, multiple advertising opportunities and numerous recognition of the partnership across various media elements - just to name a few.
