Clubs for Cumberland

Clubs for Cumberland is a community grant program supporting local projects and services that provide assistance to people in the Cumberland area.

What is ClubGRANTS?

ClubGRANTS is a community grants program funded by local clubs and administered by Cumberland Council. The scheme enables registered clubs with gaming machine profits over $1 million to apply for a tax rebate (of 1.85%). The tax rebate is used to provide grants to not-for-profit community organisations for community projects. The Scheme is guided by the Gaming Machine Tax Act 2001.
