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 2020 the club donated in excess of $75,000.00 and in 2021 over $80,000.00 in cash to local organisations.  Not included in these figures is all the in-kind donations for example use of the club facitities, bus etc.

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.

Funding is available under three separate categories:

Category 1: Supports community welfare and social services; community development; employment assistance activities; community health services; and projects aimed at improving the living standards of low income and disadvantaged people.

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

Category 3: Is a state-wide fund that supports large-scale community infrastructure projects. Grants are available for sport, emergency and disaster relief, and arts and culture infrastructure.

Each year Davistown RSL Club provides grants to support local community groups and organisations. In 2021 this amounted to over $80,000 in Category 1 and Category 2 donations to the groups and organisations listed below.
