How to Apply

Giving back to the community is in every local club’s DNA – it’s the reason why clubs exist and it’s something they’re 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, including a record $100 million in 2014, ClubGRANTS is without doubt one of the largest and most effective grants programs in Australia.

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.

The ClubGRANTS Application Guide has been prepared to assist prospective applicants navigate the Scheme. The Guide provides general information on the various funding categories, who can apply, how to apply, and reporting requirements. It also provides advice to applicants on how to stand out from the pack and how to say thanks.
