Community Groups in the Sawtell area have an opportunity to formally apply to our club for funding for various community-related projects. The funding is made available from profits generated by our club from gaming. The ClubGRANTS Scheme (formerly the CDSE Scheme) was established to formalise this funding process.
The ClubGRANTS Scheme was designed to ensure that larger registered clubs in NSW contribute to the provision of front-line services to their local communities; and to ensure that the disadvantaged in the community are better positioned to benefit from the substantial contributions made by those clubs.
There are two categories of ClubGRANTS available:
Category 1 funding is specifically for local projects and/or services that contribute to the welfare and broader social fabric of the local community and are aimed at improving the living standards of low income and disadvantaged people. These projects encompass Community Welfare & Social Services, Community Development, Community Health Services and Employment Assistance Activities.
Category 2 funding is generally for projects not listed or eligible for Category 1 funding such as Sport and Recreational Clubs, Cultural Activities – Visual/Performing Arts, Charity Fundraising, Medical Research and in-kind services such as Complimentary Room Hire, Fundraising Products and Prizes and Training Facilities for Elite Athletes.
Community groups are encouraged to apply for Category 1 or Category 2 funding by downloading and completing the relevant form and returning it to Sawtell RSL, P.O. Box 36, Sawtell, 2452 or emailing directly to firstname.lastname@example.org along with all supporting documentation. All applications are reviewed by the Board of Directors on a monthly basis and are either approved or rejected depending on their merits and the amount of funding available at the time.
Unlike Category 1 funding, Category 2 is available all-year-round and there is no standard application form. Applicants should follow these steps:
- Review the eligibility criteria on page 5 of the ClubGRANTS Application Guide to determine if your project is eligible for funding.
- Visit the ‘Find Your Local Grant Round’ page on the ClubsNSW ClubGRANTS website to find which clubs in your area provide ClubGRANTS funding.
- Contact your local ClubGRANTS club(s) directly and submit a letter to the club board requesting funding, with details of your project’s purpose, the amount of funding requested, and information on how your project will benefit the community.
If you are unsure which category of funding your organisation may be eligible for, please contact the club on (02) 6653 1577 and ask for advice from the Clubs General Manager.
