Who we are
Sometimes, fundraising can seem like a daunting task. The good news is, the Australian Sports Foundation is here to help you.
We work with Australian sports clubs, individual athletes and sporting organisations, large and small, to help raise money for Australian sport.
And with almost 30 years’ experience raising money for Australian sport, and over $350 million raised during that time, partnering with us is the best choice.
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 Sports 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.
Our easy to use platform will help you fundraise through crowd funding, community, peer-to-peer, one-off donations and regular giving. Your club or organisation can even work with us to activate workplace giving through their partnership with Good2Give.
In the 2016/17 financial year, sporting clubs and organisations – just like yours – raised almost $45 million through us.
Signing up with us is the only way for your members and supporters to donate to your club or organisation AND receive a tax deduction for their contributions. We also take care of processing and receipting of both online and offline donations, reviewing expenditures to ensure that funds are properly used, take care of admin, and provides you with support from a Sports Partnership Manager so you can focus on fundraising.
But the benefits of partnering with us don’t stop with tax deductibility. We have three decades of experience fundraising for sport and have used this knowledge to create fundraising resources to support clubs and organisations of all sizes and capabilities to fundraise effectively and successfully. Our insightful Sports Fundraising Snapshot reveals who, what, when, where and how people donate to grassroots sport, and our Donor Research highlights the motivations and the “why” around donating to sport.
