Applications for the 2017 ClubGRANTS scheme open on April 3rd!
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.
Applications for the 2017 ClubGRANTS scheme open on the 3rd of April, and Wenty Leagues welcomes proposals for funding from all local not-for-profit community groups, charities and organisations. Funded by local clubs and administered by Cumberland Council, the ClubGRANTS scheme is designed to assist and promote the local community priorities, namely community welfare and social services, community development, health services and employment assistance activities.
In 2016, Wenty Leagues was the largest contributor in Holroyd with well over $1 million donated to community projects – we’re excited to see what initiatives we can assist in 2017.
Need help with your application? We’re holding a range of sessions, workshops and advisory desks to assist you!
