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
This quarter our three charities are:
SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY

The Smith Family
The Smith Family provides long-term educational
support for disadvantaged Australian children and young people. Our support
starts in a child’s early years, working with their family and community to
prepare them for school. When a child is at school, we make sure they have the
resources and support they need to attend regularly, engage in learning and be
motivated to stay at school until they complete Year 12. At the same time, we
support parents by giving them the skills and confidence to encourage learning
at home and to engage positively in their child’s education.
