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.
Take a look at some of our recent examples of successfully-funded projects.
Canterbury League Club, Canterbury Hurlstone Park RSL Club, Campsie RSL and The Lantern Club have united to provide life-changing educational support to over 200 students in local primary schools.
This coordinated approach from the clubs created a funding partnership with Learning Links to run individual and small group intervention across 15 schools in the local area, to improve the literacy and numeracy outcomes of children with learning difficulties.
Clubs across the state have come together to support the Litres for the Land appeal, with the initiative raising money for the purchase of much-needed water in areas of the state where water resources are scarce.
Through club fundraising activities and public donations, Team Rubicon Australia has purchased millions of litres of water which has been transported and provided for free to farms and families that need it the most.
Vision Australia's Orientation and Mobility Program is designed to provide clients with strategies for safe travel and independent living in their homes and within their local community.
The ability to engage in personally-meaningful activities is paramount to their well-being, both physically and emotionally and signifies real benefit in combating depression, loneliness and anxiety, which are considerably higher in people with vision loss.
This project will provide O&M services and white canes to 19 clients living in the Hornsby Shire Council area who currently require this vital service to ensure safe, equitable and independent travel in their community.
The Veterans Centre employs industry experts to provide a national first service delivery model addressing the complexities faced by our current and former service men, women and their families.
More than 200 current and former service personnel, their partners and families have been assisted in the last 12 months. This number, and demand for support, continues to increase exponentially as the issues facing the transition from military to civilian life continue to intensify and present in a variety of forms.
In 2018/19 Dee Why RSL contributed well in excess of $500,000 in ClubGRANTS funding.
The Endeavour programme is ongoing and targets young Indigenous male students from Sydney, regional NSW and across Australia.
ClubGRANTS funding will support the direct placement of 43 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander male students at the Endeavour Clontarf Academy located at Endeavour Sports High School, in Caringbah. The Clontarf programme will expose the boys to as many experiences, activities, environments, social settings and people as possible; in order to broaden their thinking about what life may hold for them in the future.
