Good Sports clubs provide the community with so much. Healthy activities, the chance to connect and socialise, family-friendly venues and being part of our welcoming Aussie sporting culture.

But clubs don’t run on thin air and sausage sizzles. Equipment, office supplies, fees, insurance, power and water. It all costs money.

Use these tips to lift your fundraising game and get some cash flow for your club.
