Club Grants

Davistown RSL Club participates in the ClubGRANTS program. The ClubGRANTS program makes a real difference to the community via its many contributions to community groups, charities and sports organisations, and also providing assistance to specific community development and support projects. In 2021 the club donated in excess of $80,000.00 and in 2022 over $102,900.00 in cash & in-kind donations to local organisations.  

Since the ClubGRANTS scheme began, clubs have given more than $1 billion to recipients such as Surf Life Saving, the Ted Noffs Foundation, Vision Australia and Legacy. ClubGRANTS funding is available to community groups, charities and sporting teams across NSW. Approximately 500 clubs voluntarily allocate funds to the ClubGRANTS scheme.

Category 2: Provides funding for general community development and support activities, such as junior sport.
