The ClubGRANTS Scheme

Through the ClubGRANTS scheme, large registered clubs in NSW contribute directly to the provision of front-line services to their local communities and ensure that the disadvantaged benefit from the substantial contributions made by those clubs.

In 2013, New South Wales clubs gave more than $90 million in funding under Categories 1 and 2 of the ClubGRANTS scheme to thousands of NSW community groups, charities and sporting organisations. Since its inception in 1998, the ClubGRANTS scheme has delivered almost $1 billion in funding to local communities.

ClubGRANTS Category 3 Fund

In 2011 the ClubGRANTS scheme was expanded with the development of the ClubGRANTS Category 3 stream, a state-wide funding pool established to support the development of large scale sport, health and community infrastructure projects. Approximately $12 million will be available each year, with the funds derived from large registered clubs.
