Through the ClubGRANTS scheme, Canada Bay Club has provided ongoing financial support to organisations who provide specific and dedicated services in our local community. Through the strong support of our members and all who utilise the club’s facilities and services, we are able to give back to the community through cash and in-kind donations. We are proud of our community partnerships and have provided over $500,000 in financial support in the last year to over 150 local schools, sporting groups and community organisations.
The ClubGRANTS scheme runs annually from September to August. Organisations wishing to apply for funding will need to complete an application form, see links below. All applications are tabled at monthly Board meetings. Please plan ahead with your requests as applications for funding may take up to two months for processing.
Need help with your application? Please read the ClubGRANTS Application Guide to assist in how to apply for funding.
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: 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.
Community groups are encouraged to apply for Category 1 or Category 2 funding by downloading and completing the relevant form. Category 1 application forms can be emailed through to the local committee or returned to Canada Bay Club. Category 2 applications can be returned directly to the club, PO Box 85, Five Dock NSW 2046 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org along with all supporting documentation.
