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, ClubGRANTS is without doubt one of the largest and most effective grants programs in Australia.
Applications for the 2018 ClubGRANTS open on the Monday 9 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.
If you require assistance with your application, you are welcome to attend the ClubGRANTS Information Session at Wenty Leagues on Tuesday 10 April. The Advisory Desk will be held on Thursday 12 May which will provide applicants with tailored advice on their project.
The ClubGRANTS Application Workshops will also be held on Thursday 19 April and Thursday 26 April.

WENTY LEAGUES IN THE COMMUNITY WENTY LEAGUES’ INAUGURAL CAROLS ON RINGROSE RAISES $10,000 FOR YOUTH OFF THE STREETS
For the very first time, Wenty Leagues hosted Carols on Ringrose on Monday 18 December. The family fun event was held in partnership with Youth off the Streets, raising awareness and funds for the organisation. The night featured live music and of course lots of carols with Casey Donovan, Uptown Funk, Splash Dance, Paul Fenech performing as Elvis and more, plus rides, food trucks and fireworks.
The night was a great success with an amazing turn out and a total of $10,000 raised for Youth off the Streets. Goldcrest Security also generously donated their services for a safe and friendly evening. Wenty Leagues would like to truly thank all the members and visitors in attendance and all those that donated on the night. We look forward to hosting the event again next Christmas.
WENTY LEAGUES GIVING TREE GIVES HOPE TO THOSE IN NEED
Wenty Leagues has proudly partnered with Parramatta Mission to help those in the community that are disadvantage or in need of essential support services.
In December, all donations from the Wenty Leagues Giving Tree, including non-perishable food items, toys, clothing and more went to Parramatta Mission. An additional $2,270 was donated by Wenty Leagues which went towards providing hamper bags for packaging all the food items.
Over two days, the staff at Wenty Leagues gave up their time to support Parramatta Mission prepare for the busy holiday period. On the first day, the team packed close to 300 food hampers with items such as, long-life milk and juice, nuts, pudding, ham, chocolates and more. A week before Christmas, a team of staff worked together to help hand out hundreds of hampers for both individuals and families as well as toys for those children that may miss out during Christmas. The experience was very rewarding for all staff involved in helping bring smiles to those doing it tough.
