Donations and Sponsorship

At Whitehaven Coal, we're committed to making a difference in the communities in which we operate through discretionary support for a range of charities and community organisations.

We take great pride in our long-standing links with the local communities, including the fact the majority of our workforce live in the local areas within which we operate.

Our Whitehaven Coal charity and sponsorship team meets regularly to consider requests for donations, sponsorship and gifts in kind, based on charitable criteria that benefit:

  • Health
  • Education
  • The whole of community

    Applications which fall outside these charitable areas will not generally be considered for support. Unfortunately, due to the extremely high level of interest, we are unable to support all requests. Any decision made by Whitehaven Coal concerning funding or gifts in kind is final.

  • That may be detrimental to Whitehaven Coal's brand
  • Organisations linked to contentious issues
  • Political organisations or campaigns
  • A direct or indirect competitor to Whitehaven Coal
  • Organisations or activities whose planned activities could be potentially hazardous or illegal

    If you are interested in applying for either a charitable donation or sponsorship, please email
