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 Dean. 

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.

The Council ClubGRANTS rounds are currently open (running through March & April) and below are the relevant links to each council. Please check each website for exact application closing dates.

We encourage all organisations that support communities in these council areas to apply.
