Giving back to the community is in all club’s DNA – it’s the reason why clubs exist and it’s something clubs are extremely passionate about.
Each year through ClubGRANTS, clubs across NSW provide support to tens of thousands of local community organisations, sporting groups, and charities that make a difference in their local area. With more than $1 billion in funding provided since the program’s inception, clubs take pride in the fact that ClubGRANTS is without doubt once of the largest and most effective grants programs in Australia.
Community groups such as Surf Life Saving, Men of League Foundation, Ted Noffs, Little Wings, SouthernCare, Vision Australia, SES, Youth Off The Streets and Legacy are just some of the many organisations that have benefited from the support provided by clubs through ClubGRANTS.
Under legislation, West Tamworth League Club and Wests’ Diggers is required to invest 2.25% of total gaming revenue back into the community. A list of organisations that received ClubGRANTS funding in the 2018-19 ClubGRANTS year can be found here.
Funding is available under three separate categories:
|Category 1: Funding for specific community welfare and social services, community development, health services and employment assistance activities; and other projects aimed at improving the living standards of low income and disadvantaged people.|
|Category 2: Funding for general community development and support activities, such as junior sport.|
|Category 3: A state-wide funding pool that supports the construction of large-scale community infrastructure projects (NB: Category 3 funding, or Infrastructure Grants, is administered by the Office of Responsible Gambling).|
