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 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.

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!

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.
