NSW Golf Foundation

The New South Wales Golf Foundation is a charitable body that administers and manages grants throughout the NSW golf community.

The Foundation is an independent entity with its own Board of Governors. Its role is to encourage participation and development of the game when barriers such as location or adversity prevent people from taking part.

Golf is an institution that enjoys membership numbers and social engagement on a scale that’s barely matched by any other sport in our State. At times however, some of our members face challenges in keeping a community association or maintaining participation levels for reasons outside of their scope. The Foundation considers applications for financial assistance throughout the year from clubs and supporting organisations who can demonstrate hardships of the kind outlined in the application or who are growing and developing golf in NSW.

Grants that are awarded go towards projects, programs and services which benefit both golf and the community.

The NSW Golf Foundation is about "DRIVING GOLF FORWARD" by building and enhancing the sport for all participants.

The NSW Golf Foundation is registered with the Australian Sports Foundation (ASF). Pursuant to the ASF listing in the Income Tax Assessment (1997) (Division 30, Sect 20-90), donations of $2.00 AUD or more to the Foundation are Tax Deductible.

Donors must contribute unconditionally to the ASF to claim a tax deduction, however the ASF’s structure makes it possible for you to indicate an approved projects as the preferred beneficiary of your gift, which in this case is the NSW Golf Foundation.
