Support for the game and its community.

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

Over the course of the 2018 season, the Australian Rugby Foundation pledged to raise awareness and funding to reinvest into community initiatives.

Funds were raised each time a 7s ($500/try), Wallaby & Wallaroo ($5,000/try) scored a try at a domestic match.We are thrilled to announce that we have raised $95,500 throughout the season. Funds raised through this important campaign are being directed to support community coach development as well as funding Campo’s clinics around the country.
