Community Funding

Need Community Funding for your Sports Club?

To assist community groups and sporting clubs there are several community funding and sporting grants available. Community funding and grants can help you give access to money to complete your project whether it is for sports equipment or infrastructure improvement. We have been working with sports and recreation groups since 2006 and have a solid track record in helping clubs secure grants. Get in contact today to find out how we can help you.


Public Grants

The Australian government provides financial assistance in the form of grants and concessions to individuals, organisations, and community groups.

The government invests over $1.3 billion annually in the sports and recreation sector. You can also apply for private grants funded by corporations and non-governmental agencies.

Public grants are funded with the help of local, state and federal government and government agencies. If you are able to secure a public grant, it can give you access to money to complete your entire project. Although they have a complex application process and deadlines, we can help you with the entire process to make it smooth and stress-free.
