If you are part of a central WA grassroots not-for-profit community sports group or organisation, you can now apply for grants up to $10,000 to promote diversity and inclusion in sport.
Supported by Australia post, The Australian Sports Foundation’s Giving for Grassroots (also known as the G4G™) will award grants between $2,500 and $10,000 through the Sport4Everyone program. Clubs and organisations that grow sport among all genders, cultures, abilities and ages will primarily be chosen.
Sports Foundation Chief Executive, Patrick Walker, said G4G™ can affect real change in community health and wellbeing in metropolitan, regional and rural Australia. “Our G4G™ grants have significant impact on sports communities where funding is most needed – at the grassroots level,” said Mr Walker.
The Sports Foundation was established by the Australian Government to support the development of sport. It is the only organisation in Australia able to provide a tax deduction for donations to sport. The Sports Foundation is listed in the Income Tax Assessment Act as a Deductible Gift Recipient and donations of $2 or more to Sports Foundation projects are tax deductible.
G4G™ grant applications can be made at www.sportsfoundation.com.au, with entries closing at 5pm on Thursday 26th April 2018.
