Community Benefit Fund

We are deeply committed to the communities we call home. In these beautiful locations we take pride in our work and work hard to generate shared prosperity.

As an intrinsic element of the coastal and rural communities in which we live and work we are delighted to support a variety of local-led events, activities, and community projects that reflect our corporate values as well as those of our teams.

We believe it is the right thing to do as our collective successes bring positive change in those areas where we operate.

We welcome applications to our Cooke Community Benefit Fund to support the fundraising efforts of local groups, service clubs and charities which, in partnership with us, also contribute to the social network and economic health of the coastal and rural communities around us.

How it works

Please apply well in advance, particularly if you would like our support for a one-off event. If your event is less than 60 days from the date of application, we may not be able to help.

Successful applicants are those we consider provide benefit to our communities.

We are happy to provide donations such as salmon for community raffle prizes. We would need a month to process these requests.

We regret that we don’t sponsor individuals or organisations that cannot show solid financial records.

Please reference our guide and Community Benefit Fund Frequently Asked Questions documents for more advice on how to fill out the form.
