SPORT ACCESS FOUNDATION
Sport Access Foundation offers grants to Australian children with a disability so that they have an opportunity to play and participate in sport.
Funds raised by Sport Access Foundation go towards providing financial assistance - through annual grants - for key sports projects and events for Australian kids who have a disability.
When Sport Access Foundation first offered grants to help children with a disability to participate in sport, we received 27 applications. In 2018, we received 100.
This year we are aiming to double that again and to reach as many children possible.
We are also increasing our grants to provide as many children with the opportunity to recieve a sporting grant. For more details on our 2019 grants visit our website - www.sportaccessfoundation.org.au
