Last year, registered clubs allocated more than $100 million to deserving causes through the ClubGRANTS program.
Since the scheme began, clubs have given more than $1 billion to recipients such as Surf Life Saving, the Ted Noffs Foundation, Vision Australia and Legacy. ClubGRANTS funding is available to community groups, charities and sporting teams across NSW. Approximately 500 clubs voluntarily allocate funds to the ClubGRANTS scheme.
Funding is available under three separate categories:
|Category 1: Supports community welfare and social services; community development; employment assistance activities; community health services; and projects aimed at improving the living standards of low income and disadvantaged people.|
|Category 2: Provides funding for general community development and support activities, such as junior sport.|
|Category 3: Is a state-wide fund that supports large-scale community infrastructure projects. Grants are available for sport, emergency and disaster relief, and arts and culture infrastructure.|

Clubs are not-for-profit organisations that exist to give back to their local communities. Whether it’s sponsoring the local footy team, helping school children plant new trees, giving money to children’s hospitals or engaging people with disabilities, your local club is involved in more projects than you may realise.
