ClubGRANTS is one of Australia’s largest grant programs, providing more than $100 million in cash each year to a variety of worthy causes across NSW.
Charities, sporting organisations and not-for-profit community groups are among tens-of-thousands of worthy causes funded through the program each year.
The scheme was introduced in 1998 by the NSW Government. In 2014, ClubGRANTS delivered more than $100 million in funding to thousands of charities, sporting teams and community groups, and more than $1 billion has been provided since the Scheme began.
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.
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.
The program is made possible through the support of NSW clubs, local councils and the NSW Government.
Applying for ClubGRANTS funding is quick and easy. All funding is processed locally and community groups can contact their local clubs easily and at any time for information and advice. ClubGRANTS is also flexible, allowing clubs to provide support quickly, efficiently, and often as soon as a need emerges.
To be eligible to apply, you must be a not-for-profit organisation and provide the following project and/or services: community welfare or social services, community development, community health services or employment assistance activities. You are also eligible if you or your organisation is involved in community or professional sport.
