Australian Sports Foundation announces 62 grassroots clubs to receive grants

The Australian Sports Foundation is delighted to announce that 62 clubs have been selected to receive funding under its Giving4Grassroots program. The successful clubs will receive grants of up to 21 thousand dollars to fund the purchase of much needed kit, uniforms and equipment.

Sports Foundation Chief Executive Patrick Walker said: “Thanks to the support of a generous benefactor, we have been able to distribute funds that are aimed at promoting participation among young Australians. All sports require equipment – whether it’s a bat, a ball or something else – and this grant program allocates funds to help clubs acquire much-needed equipment to get more Australians involved in junior sport. The funds will be used by the successful clubs to acquire equipment for their junior teams, or to assist disadvantaged Australians who may not be able to afford the necessary kit themselves.”
