Australia’s Premier Sports Fundraising Team

We work with Australian sports clubs, individual athletes and sporting organisations, large and small, to help raise money for Australian Sport. From large and well-known sports to more niche pursuits, sport helps to grow and improve our local communities and the Australian Sports Foundation is here to help that along with the country’s greatest sports fundraising team.

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

We help your Australian sports fundraising gain tax-deductible status

Registering with us means you or your organisation can take advantage of our unique Deductible Gift Recipient status, meaning that anyone that donates to your Australian Sports Foundation project can receive a tax deduction for amounts of $2 or more. Last financial year, Australians donated almost $32 million through us to help sport and because they can receive a tax deduction!

Tax deductibility helps out people who want to donate to your fundraiser, making the burden of supporting sport lighter for those dedicated fans who take it up.

Any Australian sporting organisation which needs a financial push can take advantage of our sports fundraising expertise and Deductible Gift Recipient status – just look through our list of project pages to see some of the outstanding athletes, clubs and leagues we have supported in the past.

Our programs:

Fundraising4Sport  Our general fundraising program raising funds through tax deductible donations for over 1000 organisations and athletes from around the country. 

Fundraising4Sport also allows fundraisers to access our Community Fundraising platform – 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 online registration, promotional sub-pages for each of your fundraisers and live tracking of your donation total.

Giving4GrassrootsOur national small grants program that funds initiatives and programs aimed at increasing participation in grassroots and community sport throughout Australia.

Grassroots sports are the foundation upon which many Australian communities and much of our national culture are built; they draw people together for a common cause, generate excitement and activity around community events, and offer a path for Australians to pursue their sports in a true competitive environment without having to turn professional. We sponsor grassroots sports across the country, with strongly established support in Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.
