HOW WE CONTRIBUTE
The ClubGRANTS program is a state-wide initiative introduced in 1998
(formally Community Development and Support Expenditure Scheme). Clubs
that earn over $10 million annually in gaming machine revenue are to
provide funding for community projects.
CEO of Canterbury Hurlstone
Park RSL Club, Dean Thomas said: “Clubs have been at the heart of the
community for many years, providing local groups and charities with
encouragement and support. Bringing communities together and being able
to give back is the basis of what RSL’s are built upon and something we
are very proud of.”
“Year after year, we commit to funding more
than what is legally required by ClubGRANTS. The community is our
foundation and we will continue to support the area in where we live and
breathe, including sports, health and aged care, disability, youth,
education and family services, they are all so vitally important,” said
Part of the ClubGRANTS budget is overseen by a committee of
local Clubs and councils. Collectively we have supported a wide range of charities and not-for-profit organisations
throughout both the City of Canterbury Bankstown and Inner West Local Government Areas. The scheme has had a
tremendous impact on both large charitable organisations as well as
smaller localised services. They have gained valuable resources and
support, ultimately from their own community.
