Australia’s Premier Sports Fundraising Team

The Australian Sports Foundation was established by the Federal Government in 1986 with the mission to raise money for Australian sport.

For over 30 years we have helped clubs and organisations from the grassroots and community level, to professional and elite national level, and individual athletes to fundraise for sport.

We have helped raise over $300 million in additional funding for Australian sport which has resulted in more opportunities for people to participate in sport at all levels.

With over 2300 projects and 1200 organisations and athletes signed up, we know we can help you too.


We help your Australian sports fundraising gain tax-deductible status!

We are uniquely positioned to enable philanthropic support to Australian sport by providing tax deductibility for donations made to projects signed up with us. We are the only organisation that can provide a tax deduction for donations to sport across Australia. We are a deductible gift recipient (DGR), and have a special listing in the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 (Subdivision 30-B, s30-90).

Fundraising4Sport- F4S

Fundraising4Sport is just that, fundraising for large organisations through to individual athletes, from grassroots to professional and representative levels. There are three separate program sub-sets to cover the range of projects across Australia:

  • Club and Organisation

    Clubs and Organisations can raise funds for projects and programs that will develop their sport, increase participation, fund team travel and facilities, fund high performance or create pathways.

  • Community Fundraising

    It’s crowdfunding for sports lovers. Your community – schools, shops, workplaces, teams, individuals – join with your fans, members, and athletes to be part of your fundraising.

  • Athlete Fundraising

    Athletes who are training and participating to achieve State or National level representation can sign up and fundraise to support their sporting needs. The program supports Junior, Open and Masters athletes.

How it works

An organisation or representative athlete can sign up themselves (or a particular project) with us. Donations are made to projects through the Australian Sports Foundation allowing donors to claim a tax deduction for donations of $2 or more. Donors nominate their preferred project as the beneficiary of their gift and we grant funds raised to the nominated organisation or athlete. All projects signed up with us get their own page on our website with an online donation facility, making it easy for donors to support to a project. Once signed up, organisationsor athletes get their very own portal to log in and track donations and project progress.


G4GTM is our small grants program focused on increasing participation in grassroots and community sport across Australia.
The G4GTM program provides grants for community-based organisations to help them carry out projects and programs to increase participation in community sport.
Funds for the G4GTM  program come from generous donations by members of the wider sports-passionate Australian community.
