Grants are one of a valuable range of fundraising options available to sporting clubs, the others being sponsorship and internal fundraising. Sporting clubs are encouraged to maintain an annual diary as many grants are often released each year. This will mean you are well prepared when grants come up.
It’s important that clubs realise that grants are not a hand-out, but rather are attached to the achievement of desired outcomes as specified by the funding body. Clubs need to be careful not to ‘grant grab’ for the sake of it but rather think about the club’s future directions and how a grant project could support this.
Don’t forget that our GippSport program coordinators are funded to provide assistance to clubs in applying for grants. If you have any questions or require assistance with the application please don’t hesitate to contact our office.
