The number of people playing sport in Australia is in sharp decline. Athletes struggle to pay for sporting gear or for competition related travel. Grassroots clubs are resorting to using old and tired equipment.
While we all love our sport even the most basic of sporting endeavours requires funds. Unfortunately despite our love, sport is severely underfunded with many people struggling to afford the cost of play.
The Australian Sports Foundation has been helping athletes, sporting clubs and organisations fundraise for more than 30 years.
To further address the funding shortfall the Sports Foundation has successfully gained charitable status to enable private and public ancillary funds to invest in a sporting future where everyone can play.
