Supporting Our City
We are proud of the place we live and recognise the importance in supporting local businesses, industry groups and local events that bring the community together to celebrate our City.
Being part of the Gold Coast community means giving back. We’re not just about entertainment – we’re also committed to providing support to make a positive impact in the community in which we work and play.
Together with Treasury Brisbane, we’ve contributed more than $100 million into Queensland communities since we opened.
Every year we continue to support a number of organisations and charities through partnerships, cash and prize donations, and sponsorships. It’s our way of giving back to the city we are proud to call home.

The Surf Life Saving movement not only plays an important role in the lives of local Gold Coasters and visitors to our city, but also in the lives of our Team Members.
A major supporter of Surf Life Saving Queensland since 1994 – our partnership continues to grow to support the organisation.
As part of our partnership with Surf Life Saving Queensland we have been a major supporter of the annual Surf Safe Appeal which provides much needed equipment to support surf clubs across the Gold Coast.

Gambling Community Benefit Fund

View details on the Gambling Community Benefit Fund.
The Star Gold Coast recognises the important role the organisation plays in the local community and we are committed to continuing the company’s record as patron of many charity, cultural and community activities in the South East Queensland region.
However due to the large number of sponsorship and donation requests, unfortunately it makes it difficult to accept every idea presented to us.
