A sponsorship process that allows the Tasmanian community to decide who RACT supports.
Every quarter three much deserving charitable organisations are chosen to receive funding through our Community Act of Royalty Program.
These charities are featured in all of our RACT branches and each time a purchase is made by a customer, they receive a token to place in a box nominating one of the three charities to receive funding.
The organisation with the most tokens at the end of the quarter will receive $3000, the organisation that comes second will receive $2000 and the organisation that comes third will receive $1000.
Charitable organisations wishing to be considered for future participation can apply here and send their application form to

Epilepsy is a common condition that people are born with, or can develop from a head injury due to an accident or fall. Its recurring, unpredictable seizures are due to excessive electrical activity in the brain. One in five Tasmanians will have, know or support someone with epilepsy. There is no cure, but medication helps control seizures for around 70% of people. Epilepsy Tasmania is a local Tasmanian charity reliant on donations to provide its statewide services and support.
