Grassroots Rugby

The Australian Rugby Foundation supports Rugby Australia’s vision to grow rugby, by investing in grassroots / community rugby initiatives to inspire all Australians to enjoy our great global game.

We are developing a Rugby Fundraising toolkit and resource center to support all clubs in their fundraising efforts. Working in partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation, rugby clubs can promote tax deductible donations to fund grassroots and community initiatives.

National School’s Strategy

The Australian Rugby Foundation supports Rugby Australia’s implementation of the National Schools Strategy. A focus on providing access all school students, to quality competitions and Rugby experiences at a local level (through access to participation programs – Game On, and quality and balanced competitions and formats – VIVA7s, Sevens and XVs) and elite level (through access to competitions, facilities, infrastructure and connections with state and national pathways).

Try Time Campaign

Our 'Try Time Campaign is an Australian Rugby Foundation initiative donating money for every try scored by an Australian player on home soil. Due to the success of Try Time at Sydney 7s, the Australian Rugby Foundation is now rolling out Try Time for every Australian domestic match in 2018. This includes both the Men's and Women's 7s teams, The Wallabies and Wallaroos. All money raised is going towards Grassroots Rugby -Coaching Clinics, Coach education and getting more kids into the game. Make your Try Time donation today.
