Grants are a great way to raise funds and can help a variety of people, programs and communities. A grant may be for a special project or program your club may have or help fund a sporting trip as an individual representing your State. To help, RSA has collated some of the avalible grants that are open to Clubs, not-for-profits and individuals.

RSA is able to assist with letters of support or other necessary requirements if the applicant provides the grants information and requests via email with due notice.


SportSA is a great way to keep track of Sport Grants throughout the year. Head to their page to see if any suit your needs.
