Football Queensland (FQ) affiliates are encouraged to consider applying for future rounds of the Gambling Community Benefit Fund after over $600,000 in funding was recently approved for Queensland clubs and organisations.
24 FQ affiliates were successful with approvals totalling $625,457 in the recently announced May 2019 round, with the next round closing on October 31.
Not-for-profit groups operating in Queensland can apply for grants from $500 to $35,000 through the Gambling Community Benefit Fund, one of the state’s largest one-off community grants programs that distributes approximately $57 million per year.
The fund allocates grants to not-for-profit community groups, to enhance their capacity to provide services, leisure activities and opportunities for Queensland communities.
This program is a great way for Queensland clubs and zones to present a proactive approach to their members and community in supporting the development of the game.
