Here’s how it works
Whether you’re raising money to build a new clubhouse or team rooms, upgrade lighting or purchase sports equipment, grow participation, enhance performance or support team or athlete travel, or you're an individual who needs additional funds on your road to the 2016 Rio Olympics or Paralympics, our F4S program is a great way to attract donors.
You have a funding need and decide to embark on a campaign to raise funds. If you register your organisation and project, or yourself as a project, with the ASF, donations are made to the ASF, allowing donors to use our tax deductible status to claim tax relief for any donation of $2 or more. Donors nominate your project as their preferred beneficiary and we grant monies raised to your project (for details see our Terms & Conditions).
Everyone benefits – your donors are able to claim tax deductions for their donations and our fundraising resources and guidance are available to help ensure the success of the fundraising campaign. All projects registered with the ASF are showcased on our website, complete with photographs and other information to attract donors, and we accept donations using our online donation facilities, which makes it even easier for donors to pledge their support.
Fundraising for clubs or organisations – Organisations we work with include sporting clubs, regional, state and national sporting organisations, schools, councils and community groups. However, this is not an exhaustive list – as long as you’re a non-profit organisation, incorporated in Australia under appropriate legislation, financially viable and you have an ABN, then your sporting project may be eligible for our F4S program.

Fundraising for athletes – Any Australian elite athlete in the process of qualifying for or heading to either the Olympics or Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro in 2016 can #joinourteam and take advantage of tax deductible donations and fundraise with us. Find out more.
Applying for F4S is easier than it’s ever been but we know there are always things that need extra information and explanation.
We want to show you how you could spend less time organising chocolate drives or sausage sizzles and more time enjoying your sport by partnering with us and fundraising through tax deductible donations. This is why we have developed an F4S Guide to Registering, which will help you understand how F4S works and guide you through our simple online registration.
