The following tools may also help determine your organisation’s greatest needs to manage and govern, and potentially deliver better services:

Other funding opportunities
  • The Gambling Community Benefit Fund provides funding of $500 to $35,000 to not-for-profit groups operating in Queensland. Full eligibility and information on how to apply is available on the Gambling Community Benefit Fund website.
  • The Australian Sports Foundation may be able to assist your organisation with funding needs. The Sports Foundation have a special status that enables organisations to sign up and fundraise via tax-deductible donations. See information on how to fundraise through the Sports Foundation website.

Determine project need and how the project links with Get Going Clubs funding objectives

  • Does the project fit with Get Going Clubs project requirements? Review the guidelines (PDF, 490KB) for eligible projects and check for any ineligible components of the project.
  • What is the greatest need of our organisation and what will have the strongest and most lasting impact?
  • How well can our organisation substantiate this need and impact?
  • How does the project develop the capabilities of our organisation to better deliver activities and participation opportunities?

Developing a project plan

Use the project plan template (DOCX, 763KB) to assist your organisation in developing or delivering a project

  • The information in the project plan will assist your organisation to complete the funding application and can be attached as a supporting document.
  • Whilst it is not a requirement of the funding program that you develop a project plan, it is highly recommended.

Consult with a Sport and Recreation Regional Advisor

Organisations are strongly encouraged to discuss potential projects with a Sport and Recreation Regional Advisor:

  • to ensure the project is eligible for funding and meets the objectives of Get Going Clubs.
  • to provide useful suggestions to enhance the project and application.
  • to answer specific questions in preparation for submitting a funding application.
