Giving back to our community

For almost 45 years, Castle Hill RSL has been an important part of the Hills community – providing somewhere for its 50,000+ members to meet, eat and enjoy social interaction and friendship with others; offering much needed support and facilities to veterans and their families; and sponsorship of dozens of youth sport, recreation, art, culture and educational programs.

ClubGRANTS was designed to ensure that NSW’s larger registered clubs contribute to the provision of frontline services to their local communities and ensure that the disadvantaged can benefit from gaming contributions made by clubs.

Community groups are encouraged to apply for Category 1 or Category 2 funding. If you are unsure which category of funding your organisation may be eligible for, please contact the club and ask for advice from the ClubGRANTS co-ordinator.

The ClubGRANTS Scheme formalises the funding process for community-related projects, and there are three categories of ClubGRANTS available:

  • Category 1

    Funding is specifically for local projects and/or services that contribute to the welfare and broader social fabric of the local community and are aimed at improving the living standards of low income and disadvantaged people. These projects encompass community welfare & social services, community development, community health services and employment assistance activities.
