Australian Sports Foundation's Athlete Fundraising Program

Are you a National or State level athlete, or on the representative pathway, and do you need funding to support your sporting dreams and achievements?

Since the Australian Sports Foundation’s inception over 30 years ago, their focus has been on developing sport in Australia through tax deductible donations. They work with over 1200 clubs and organisations and have raised over $320 million for Aussie sport! 

Funds that are raised through the Australian Sports Foundation’s Athlete Fundraising program can go towards anything that will help you develop, perform or compete, such as travel and accommodation expenses, training and coaching, sporting equipment and medical costs.

The Australian Sports Foundation trialed this program for Rio bound athletes in 2016, with more than 20 athletes funding their preparations thorough their program.


Athletes sign up with us to fundraise for anything that helps support their sporting ambitions. Benefits of the program include:

- Online fundraising page and URL
Athletes can upload images and information about their fundraising goals and promote their page through your social channels and networks

- An integrated online donation form
A safe and easy way to collect donations via credit card or electronic funds transfer

- Tax deductibility for donors
All donations of $2 or more made through the Foundation are tax deductible

- Monthly grants of donations to athletes

- An online portal to track your fundraising progress and success

- Support and advice from our Athlete Fundraising Executive, Sarah Tutt
