Together with the Independent Gaming Corporation (IGC), Clubs SA invites non gaming Clubs and community organisations to apply for Project Grants via its Sponsorship Assistance Program - Clubs for Communities.


In recent years, over $3,500,000 has been directed back to the wider South Australian community under the auspices of the Sponsorship Assistance Program to provide assistance to those sectors in the community that may be 'disadvantaged', for community-based projects by not for profit organisations, or of course for sporting and community clubs themselves.

Applications for this Funding Program are accepted each month and are vetted by Clubs SA's Board before recommendations are passed on to the IGC Board.
