Berrigan Shire Council

ClubGRANTS now open in Berrigan Shire Local Government Area

Barooga Sporties, Tocumwal Golf and Bowls Club and Finley RSC have joined forces once again to provide funding to the local community via ClubGRANTS.

Last year, registered clubs in NSW allocated more than $100 million to deserving causes through the ClubGRANTS program and, since the scheme began, clubs have given more than $1 billion to recipients such as Surf Life Saving, Vision Australia and Legacy. Locally our hospitals, nursing homes, service clubs, schools and halls have all benefited from funding allocated by our Clubs.

ClubGRANTS funding is available to community groups, charities and sporting teams across NSW. Approximately 500 clubs voluntarily allocate funds to the ClubGRANTS scheme. 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.

Applications close 5pm on 31 July 2019. To apply visit the ClubGRANTS website as below.
