Applying for patronage
The Governor-General and Mrs Hurley serve as Patron of organisations who do amazing things each and every day.
Organisations can apply at any time for patronage from the Governor-General, Mrs Hurley or both, and should seek to demonstrate::
- a clear focus on relevant issues or interests of national significance
- a significant record of achievement over at least five years; and
- sound financial management and strong governance arrangements.
The Governor-General will not accept invitations for patronage from professional bodies, non-incorporated entities (such as projects, scholarships and memorials), and local organisations based outside the Australian Capital Territory.
To apply email: firstname.lastname@example.org addressing the points above and outlining what role your organisation plays in the community.
