Registered clubs make a real difference to the community. Last year, New South Wales clubs gave over $92 million to not-for-profit community groups, charities and sports organisations through the ClubGRANTS scheme – as part of clubs’ $1.2 billion contribution to the NSW community.
Organisations such as Surf Life Saving, Men of League Foundation, Ted Noffs, Hunter BreastCare, SouthernCare, Vision Australia, SES and Legacy are just a few of the organisations that benefit from the support provided by clubs through the ClubGRANTS scheme.

How to Apply
There are 3 ClubGRANTS categories, and community groups are able to apply through their Local Council Committees for Category 1 funding. Information on how to apply and deadline dates can vary depending on your Local Committee. To find details of your local committee please click here.
If you are unsure of which council area you belong to, you can check here.
Please note: Category 1 ClubGRANTS funding rounds open early in the new year. For Category 2 funding requests, please contact your local club directly.
Category 1 funding
is available for specific local community priorities such as community welfare and social services, community development, community health services and employment assistance activities. Category 2 funding
is focused on core club activities (such as an RSL supporting veterans welfare) and traditional areas of club expenditure, such as support for sport and recreation groups. **NEW** Category 3 funding:
In addition to funding currently available to the community under Categories 1 and 2, the ClubGRANTS scheme has been expanded with the development of the ClubGRANTS Category 3 Fund (the Fund); a state-wide funding pool established to support the development of large scale sport, health and community infrastructure projects.
The ClubGRANTS Category 3 Fund is managed by the Office of Liquor, Gaming & Racing (OLGR). Approximately $12 million will be available in the Fund each year, with the funds derived from registered clubs.
Further information on how to apply for Category 3 funding can be accessed here.
Guidelines A copy of the guidelines can be found here. Please carefully read the ClubGRANTS Guidelines to determine whether your project is eligble for funding and to take note of the reporting obligations for funding recipients.
