Australian Sports Foundation and CLUBMAP working together to guide community sporting clubs to success.
The Australian Sports Foundation is Australia’s leading non-profit sports fundraising organisation and charity, and the only organisation to which donations for sport are tax-deductible.
In the last 35 years, the ASF has distributed hundreds of millions of dollars to Aussie sports clubs to help develop an inclusive and active sporting nation, and to strengthen local communities.
“During more than 30 years in community and professional sport, I have seen the importance of volunteers at every level. The most important step a community sports club can take is to make life easy for the people who are running the club. One of the ways to do this is diversification of revenue streams, which is why we’ve long been recommending the Australian Sports Foundation.” - CLUBMAP Founder & CEO Terry Dillon
“We are thrilled to partner with CLUBMAP, who deliver exceptional guidance to sports clubs, enabling them to be sustainable and successful through best club administrative practices. This partnership means we can better align our support for community sports clubs, who are still facing ongoing challenges following the Covid-19 pandemic.” - Australian Sports Foundation CEO Patrick Walker.
The combined initiative will focus on delivering strategic advice, resources and tax-deductible fundraising opportunities to sporting clubs across Australia with importance placed on revenue generation and good governance in sports committee structures.

PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN CLUBMAP & ACTIVE QUEENSLANDERS INDUSTRY ALLIANCE
Formalising our long-standing working relationship to support sport in Queensland.
CLUBMAP is thrilled to formalise the partnership with Active Queenslanders Industry Alliance (AQIA). After working with Phil Reeves, Executive Chair, and his team for a number of years, it was a no-brainer to officially partner with the AQIA as the service delivery arm of the peak bodies for fitness, sport and active recreation in Queensland.

CLUBMAP and AQIA have recently formalised this working relationship in a partnership that is already making it easier for community-level organisations and clubs to operate in their local communities, and to support their workforces.
