Grant funding in Australia is offered by a broad range of institutions including government departments, corporations, non-profit organisations, foundations, educational institutions and trusts.

SLSNSW provides grant support at no charge to NSW SLSCs through The Surf Life Saving Foundation’s Grant Seeking Unit (GSU). The GSU is a national grant research and writing support unit and can assist your club in identifying suitable funding opportunities, preparing a professionally written application, lodgement and acquittal.

If you would like to speak to a member of the GSU to learn more about how the team can assist your club, please contact them on (07) 3177 5855 or email grants@sls.com.au.

For those clubs interested in preparing their own grant applications, the GSU has developed a Grant Guide for Clubs which outlines administrative functions associated with grant funding and provides sample responses for typical questions found in a grant application.

CLUBSNSW CLUBGRANTS

ClubsNSW is the peak representational body for the NSW club industry and aims to deliver a range of services to create an environment for long-term sustainability in the industry, as well as to improve conditions for both those working within the club industry and for the local communities they support.

Part of the role of ClubsNSW is to deliver the ClubGRANTS program which is a funding scheme designed to ensure larger clubs across NSW contribute to the provision of frontline services for local community organisations, sporting groups and charities that make a difference in their local area.

ClubGRANTS provides funding under three categories and the amount provided is dependent on the funding available in your area.
