Junior clubs can apply for a share of more than $1 million in equipment grants


Telstra has committed over $1 million to support eligible junior sports and community clubs across Australia with equipment grants as part of the 2010 Telstra Assistance Fund.

Since 2003, the Telstra Assistance Fund has provided over 5,700 sports and community clubs across Australia with over $7 million worth of equipment.

These equipment grants are available for eligible junior rugby league, AFL, swimming and surf live saving community clubs, and the program is now expanding to include the Telstra Country Music program, The Australian Ballet and has set its sights on including a V8 community program in 2011.

Telstra Group Managing Director, Public Policy & Communications David Quilty is pleased to see the continued support the Telstra Assistance Fund can provide to these community organisations.

“Through the Telstra Assistance Fund, we are able to provide grassroots support with much needed equipment which is vital to these clubs keeping their members at the top of their game,” said Mr Quilty.

“These clubs are the lifeblood of their communities, and Telstra is pleased to provide the equipment that helps young people follow their sport, music or dance dreams,” he added.

Telstra understands the passion local communities have for their sports and community clubs and continues to support these communities at a grassroots level.

Telstra’s commitment to supporting these clubs through Telstra Assistance Fund equipment grants means that more people in the community can reap the benefits of what these clubs have to offer.

To apply, eligible clubs simply need to go to the website at, identify the most appropriate equipment package for their club and provide a summary of how the equipment would benefit their club.
