Your Sport Needs Your Help!

Good Morning,

For almost the last 30 years the Australian Sports Foundation has been raising money for the development of sport across Australia. As one of our valued and generous donors, you will know the impact that making a tax deductible donation has made to your club, team, school sporting project or community sporting project. Your donation has helped more people to participate, has improved performance and has strengthened our communities. Thank you for your generosity!

You may have also noticed that over the last 12-18 months, we have undergone a significant transformation in order to drive more awareness and generate increased funding for sport. The number of sports projects we work with has increased from 600 to nearly 800 and we are working hard to help educate our sporting partners about how best to achieve their fundraising goals. Every day we receive new applications from organisations that want to fundraise for their sport.

Excitingly, our reach now extends all over the country to every kind of sport you can imagine (and some you can’t!), benefiting millions of Australians by enabling tax deductible donations to be made to sport, helping to build new facilities, increase participation, purchase new equipment, deliver high performance and next generation talent programs, fund programs in regional and remote areas and much, much more.

What we value the most is that all this leads not only to great outcomes for sport, but it has a significant health and well-being impact for our communities everywhere. Australian kids are now among the least active in the world, nearly a quarter of us are obese or overweight, and levels of anxiety, depression and stress are increasing to record levels.  Sport has been shown to positively impact both physical and mental health, and so it is vital that we continue to increase funding and get more people participating regularly in sport. 

The last time you donated to a project through us, your donation benefited Lacrosse Victoria Inc.. As we approach the end of the financial year, I ask you once again to consider generously donating to Lacrosse Victoria Inc. or your sport, club or community sports project.

Sport is a key part of our national identity, a common thread that weaves together communities, states and our nation. Without the support of donors like you, our future generations may not experience the sporting culture we have grown to know and love. Every donation of $2 or more is tax deductible and can make a difference to participation, performance and ultimately the health and well-being of our communities.

Today I donated to my local club, Mosman Rugby.  Please join me – visit our website and donate today to help secure a healthier, stronger and better Australia.

Cheers

Patrick
