Grant Funding for Sports Clubs
Australia is a nation obsessed with sport, and because of this we have a thriving sporting culture that runs through all participants and volunteers, from the little leagues through to the professional codes. We take great pride in producing great sportspeople from all walks of life. But this takes commitment from everyone involved, the vast majority of whom are unpaid volunteers, people who are passionate about seeing their kids enjoy sport and who want to ensure that other kids have the same opportunity. But there are only so many hours in the day. Grant funding is a valuable and essential requirement for most clubs. The good news is that there are sources of grant funding available if you know where to look, this is where we can help you.
Sourcing grant funding doesn’t have to be a chore
For those who have ever been involved in trying to source grants for sports clubs, you will know that the time commitment can be great, particularly during the on season. But for those involved in club administration, my hat goes off to you, if ever there was a thankless task that is it. The time commitment from committee members is enormous and the workload unrelenting. But one thing never, ever changes….clubs are always on the look out for money. From the constant sausage sizzles, to meat tray raffles the hunt for much needed cash to help with sporting club maintenance and development goes on and on. Seeking sources of grant funding doesn’t need to be a chore, we can help you access grant funding from various sources and we are always on the look out for new grant funding opportunities.
What if you didn’t have to worry about the money?
Sounds too good to be true? Well that is where we come in at Sports Club Assist. When we work with clubs, we do so on the basis that it does not cost the club a penny. This means that there is no burden on the club whatsoever, yet we are constantly working hard in the background sourcing grant funding for all the projects that you would like to see happen at the club. From extending your facilities, building new dressing sheds, creating more shade for spectators…you name it, we’ve got it covered. You see, there are a number of grants for sports clubs available if you just know where to look and know how to submit a successful grant application.
How can we do this?
You might be wondering what’s in it for us, and that would be a perfectly reasonable question. The simple answer is we work with a panel of sub-contractors who have been through a rigorous tendering process for the provision of the type of services needed. As a company that specialises in delivering facility improvements to sports and not-for-profits we work with a team of professional sub-contractors to ensure your improvement project is delivered on time and to budget. There are a number of grants that we source on your behalf, so there is no need for the club to be worried about being hit with a large fee request at the end of the project. So not matter what type of grant funding is best for your situation, we are happy to help. Sourcing government funding and other forms of grant funding can be a bit daunting to the inexperienced, but we know where to go for the greatest likelihood of success.
From court resurfacing through to new installation, we can make take your concept and create a workable solution that will enhance your facilities no end. It’s a fact that better facilities attract new members.
If you have larger infrastructure projects such as lighting planned, we can work with you to deliver the desired outcome and to source suitable funding for the works.
There are still government grants available for the installation of solar panels at sports clubs, so if your are interested in reducing your power bill this is a great opportunity to do so.
If you haven’t already done so, installing water tanks at the club can be a great way to preserve a valuable resource.
What have you got to lose?
Good question, and the answer is absolutely nothing. Given the way that we have structured this offering the requirements from the sports club or non-profit association are minimal at best, because we take care of:
- Helping the club to prioritise the list of mprovements they would like to see happen
- Liaise with our licensed sub-contractors to quote the work
- Prepare and lodge the grant application on behalf of the club
- Work with our sub-contractors to deliver all aspects of the works
- Ensure that the club is completely satisfied with everything
- Then we do it all again…..!
What the club won’t get is:
- A bill from anyone for any works undertaken
- Club members tied up in the whole process
- Any nasty surprises
- Any reason not to do it again….!
