Giving back to the community is something Parramatta Leagues Club is extremely passionate about.
Each year through ClubGRANTS, Parramatta Leagues provides support to local community organisations that make a difference in our local area. With a record $1,009,000 in funding in 2014, our contribution has played a vital role in backing valuable projects for the neighbourhood.
ClubGRANTS is a community development funding program enabling registered clubs with an annual gaming machine revenue exceeding $1 million to apply 1.85% of their gaming machine revenue to specific community development and support projects.
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 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.
Applications for Category 1 funding have now closed.
Category 2 funding is typically used to support a club’s core purpose. As a rugby league club, some of this funding is used to develop the game in the area by providing quality facilities and development programs. However, Parramatta Leagues Club is also committed to ensuring the success of other sports in order to keep our community active. These other sports have included water polo, swimming, rugby union, golf, touch football and many others.
We encourage other groups who are looking for assistance with their fund-raising project to apply. Your group may include a school, service club or a local charity. The club is keen to support ethnically, socially and culturally diverse groups within the community.
We may be able to assist you with a donation of cash, prizes or in-kind support such as free room hire to hold your meeting or event.
Applications have closed for Category 2 funding are open until July 31, 2016.
