Flinders Port Holdings sponsors many great community organisations, here is a snapshot:

Clontarf Foundation

Flinders Port Holdings is a proud sponsor of Clontarf Foundation.

The Clontarf Foundation exists to improve the education, discipline, life skills, self-esteem and employment prospects of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men and by doing so equips them to participate more meaningfully in society.

The Clontarf Foundation commenced in 2000 with a single academy located at the Clontarf Aboriginal College in Waterford, WA. The programme catered for 25 students and was operated by two staff members, including founder and current CEO Gerard Neesham.

More than 20 years on, the Foundation operates 131 academies in WA, NT, QLD, NSW, VIC and SA, supports more than 10,000 participants and employs over 500 dedicated staff members.

Flinders Port Holdings is proud to celebrate the beginning of this partnership with Clontarf Foundation in 2021.

One and All Tall Ship

Flinders Port Holdings is a proud sponsor of The One and All Tall Ship.

STV One and All was built by W.G. Porter & Son Pty Ltd at North Haven South Australia with the assistance of a team of enthusiastic volunteers and was commissioned on 5 April 1987. Although it is based on the original rig of an l850’s brigantine, One and All is not a replica. It is made of timber and has been built to the modern standards required by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA).

One and All is owned by the South Australian Government for and on behalf of the people of South Australia.

Flinders Port Holdings has been sponsoring One and All since 2014 and in 2017, the company sponsored three historic voyages to mark this remarkable vessel’s 30th birthday.

South Australian Maritime Museum

Flinders Port Holdings, the ports division of Flinders Port Holdings has a proud partnership with the South Australian Maritime Museum, which spans more than 14 years.

It was back in 2002 that Flinders Port Holdings first provided funding for an exhibition and this enabled the Museum to secure a development grant from the Commonwealth Government.

The much needed finance enabled the Museum to re-invent itself, bringing maritime history to a 21st century audience. Today Flinders Port Holdings supports the Museum in delivering high quality exhibitions that engage audiences, and the extremely successful schools program, which has benefited more than 7000 students since 2008.

In 2017 and 2018, Flinders Port Holdings sponsored the ‘Leviathan’ exhibition that was a close look into the science of whales in their environment and the astonishing history of whales and humans.

Youth Travel Grant Scheme for Port Lincoln & Eyre Peninsula

Flinders Port Holdings funds a travel grant scheme for families with children living in Port Lincoln and the Eyre Peninsula.

The purpose of the scheme is to help families with the cost of travel, so that their children can participate in sporting and educational activities. Administered through the office of MP for Flinders, Hon. Peter Treloar, the scheme has been assisting families from the Eyre Peninsula since 2005.
