Registered clubs make a real difference to the community. Last year, New South Wales clubs gave over $76 million to community groups, charities and sports organisations through the ClubGRANTS scheme – as part of clubs’ $1.2 billion contribution to the NSW community. Organisations such as Surf Life Saving, Men of League Foundation, Ted Noffs, Hunter BreastCare, SouthernCare, Vision Australia, SES and Legacy are just a few of the organisations that benefit from the support provided by clubs through the ClubGRANTS scheme.
For the year ending August, 2019, Penrith Bowling and Recreation Club contributed to:-
Cat 1 - $1,000 to Nepean Volunteer Services
Cat 1 - $500 to Platform Youth Services
Cat 2 - $3,000 to Western Districts Womens Hockey
$18,881.34 was raised at our Charity Bowls Day on 22/2/19, and donated to Penrith PCYC.
There are 3 ClubGRANTS categories, and community groups are able to apply through their Local Council Committees for Category 1 funding. Information on how to apply and deadline dates can vary depending on your Local Committee. To find details of your local committee please click here:

Please note: Category 1 ClubGRANTS funding rounds open early in the new year. For Category 2 funding requests, please contact your local club directly.
Category 1 funding is available for specific local community priorities such as community welfare and social services, community development, community health services and employment assistance activities.
Category 2 funding is focused on core club activities (such as an RSL supporting veterans welfare) and traditional areas of club expenditure, such as support for sport and recreation groups.
