Since our incorporation in 1955, the Mittagong RSL has continued to contribute towards the social improvement of the local community in which we operate.
Support is provided primarily in cash and in-kind donations to various not-for-profit organisations, community groups, sports clubs and other valuable community initiatives.
Community Groups in the Wingecarribee area have an opportunity to formally apply to Mittagong RSL Club for funding for various community-related projects. The ClubGRANTS Scheme (formerly the CDSE Scheme) was established to formalise this funding process.
The ClubGRANTS Scheme was designed to ensure that larger registered clubs in NSW contribute to the provision of front-line services to their local communities; and to ensure that the disadvantaged in the community are better positioned to benefit from the substantial contributions made by those clubs.
There are three categories of ClubGRANTS available:
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 are 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 for 2017 have closed.
Category 2 funding is generally for projects not listed or eligible for Category 1 funding such as Sport and Recreational Clubs, Cultural Activities – Visual/Performing Arts, Charity Fundraising, Medical Research and in-kind services such as Complimentary Room Hire and Fundraising Activities.
Applications for Category 2 Funding is open from 1st September 2017 to 31st August 2018, and are to be completed and submitted online. Please click here to be redirected to the application portal.
All applications are reviewed by the Board of Directors on a monthly basis and are either approved or rejected depending on their merits and the amount of funding available at the time.
Category 3 funding is automatically paid by the club into the NSW Government’s ClubGRANTS Fund on a quarterly basis to support and develop large scale State-wide projects or services such as Sports Venues and Facilities, Hospitals and Community Health Services, Youth Facilities, Child Care Facilities, Aged Care Facilities, Educational Facilities, Emergency Services Facilities, Parks and Recreation, Community Housing and Community Transport.
If you are unsure which category of funding your organisation may be eligible for, please contact the club and ask for advice from the ClubGRANTS co-ordinator.
