 Million dollar equipment giveaway — a new initiative by the Australian Sports Foundation is giving sports clubs, schools and communities the chance to apply for a one million dollar sports equipment giveaway.

This Giving4GrassrootsTM  grant round, Balls4All,  is the biggest donation of free sporting goods to clubs, schools and organisations in Australian history, with almost 50,000 items available to clubs.

There is a simple application process on our website for Balls4All. You will be asked some questions to determine whether or not your club is eligible to apply, such as if you have previously received a G4G grant, if you are a non-profit club, do you have an ABN and how much revenue your club obtained in the last two financial years.

To make sure filling out your application process is as smooth as possible, you should have the following ready:

  1. Have an understanding of what equipment you will apply for by reviewing our available equipment list below
  2. Your organisation’s ABN  and Incorporation Number
  3. The annual revenue for the last financial year
  4. Up to 300 words about your club
  5. Up to 300 words about what you will do with the equipment

If your club does not have an ABN because it is a school sports club, or another large organisation such as Special Olympics Australia, you can still apply. To apply you need to:

  1.  Include the ABN for the organisation to which your club belong
  2.  In the relevant questions, provide us with the details of the revenues for your club, not for the entire school, organisation or entity
  3. Include the contact details of a key contact at the school, organisation or entity in the Secondary Contact details fields…/what-you-need-to-know-about-applying/
