About the Australian Sports Foundation

We work with Australian sports clubs, individual athletes and sporting organisations, large and small, to help raise money for Australian Sport.

From grassroots and community sporting organisations, through to individual elite athletes and sporting organisations at state and national levels, the Foundation can partner with you to help raise funds for vital sporting projects – projects that improve the health of our nation, build communities and strengthen our national sporting identity.

The Foundation has unique Deductible Gift Recipient status, so partnering with us means that all donations of $2 or more are tax deductible – a real benefit to donors that will also make fundraising easier for you.

With almost 30 years’ experience raising money for Australian sport, and almost $300 million raised during that time, partnering with us is the best choice.

Individual Australian Olympic and Paralympic athletes, who have qualified or are in the process of qualifying, for Rio 2

How can you work with the Australian Sports Foundation?

The Foundation offers four fundraising models and initiatives to help assist Australian sports. All donations of $2 or more through our fundraising initiatives are tax deductible.

Fundraising4Sport we help raise funds for sporting and community clubs and organisations of all sizes, for projects that seek to develop and/or increase participation.

Community Fundraising- it’s crowdfunding for sports lovers. Schools, shops, workplaces, teams, individuals, and anyone in your community, can join together in your fundraising efforts. You’ll have a project page just like this one which includes your top fundraising champions and how much money they have raised for you.

Athlete Fundraising– is for individual Australian Olympic and Paralympic athletes to assist in their preparation for the 2016 Rio Games.  The community, both individuals and organisations, can make tax deductible donations that benefit athletes with things they need to help them get to Rio.

Giving4Grassroots– it’s our national small grants program that funds initiatives and programs aimed at increasing participation in grassroots and community sport throughout Australia.

Their long term goal is to put a cover over our 20 x 40 m dressage arena which would benefit the riders when hot or cold conditions prevail. This would also be beneficial to other community users in the Central Queensland region. Click for mor
