Each year hundreds of millions of dollars are given in grants funding for all sorts of projects and for all sorts of groups, including many Australian bowling clubs and sports-related projects. Grants are a source of money that can enable your club to tackle projects, renovations or events that may not have been possible if you were relying on the usual methods of fundraising. It is not just the dollars that benefit the club. Grants can provide an endorsement of what your club is doing, and that itself can bring wider recognition, publicity and support. It can also provide an important morale-booster to all within your club involved in the funded project.
Bowls Australia through the Club Support area provides excellent information regarding grants and how clubs can manage themselves to utilise this important source of club funding.
