About the project

The Australian Athletics Foundation is the fundraising vehicle of Athletics Australia. Run in partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation, the Australian Athletics Foundation exists to provide the opportunity for individuals, entities or groups to make tax deductible donations to help secure the future of Athletics in Australia.

Australians love athletics and want it to flourish from grass roots to the green and gold.

Athletics is the fundamental sport of Walk, Run, Jump, Throw and Roll. Athletics is physical activity for life, engaging all Australians.

Athletics is not defined by a particular body type, gender, location, culture or demographic. Athletics is an accessible sport for all abilities.

Athletics is an international sport, the original Olympic sport, a core Commonwealth Games sport. It proudly transcends nationality and religion like no other sport through exciting, competitive moments.

Walk. Run. Jump. Throw. Enjoy. Together. Athletics is for all Australians.

Your support will help Athletics Australia, its members and affiliates in their quest to:

  • Create and deliver opportunities for athletics to be a vehicle of greater community wellness, health and physical wellbeing particularly in schools and regional communities through programs such as Athletics for the Outback and Kids’ Athletics
  • Raise funds to support strategic objectives and key investments Athletics Australia, its Member Associations and affiliates to raise Athletics’ profile and appeal, and to get more people involved in Athletics across Australia
