Each year through ClubGRANTS, clubs across NSW provide support to thousands of local community organisations, sporting groups, and charities that make a difference in their local area. With more than $1 billion in funding provided since the program’s inception, ClubGRANTS is without doubt one of the largest and most effective grants programs in Australia. Applying for ClubGRANTS funding is quick and easy. All funding is processed locally, and community groups can contact their local clubs easily and at any time for information and advice. ClubGRANTS is also flexible, allowing clubs to provide support quickly, efficiently, and often as soon as a need emerges. Clubs Funding is available under three separate categories. Category 1 & 2 are administered by the club. Category 3 is administered by the Minister.

Category 1: Supports community welfare and social services; community development; employment assistance activities; community health services; and projects aimed at improving the living standards of low income and disadvantaged people.

Category 2: Provides funding for general community development and support activities, such as junior sport.

Category 3: Is a state-wide fund that supports large-scale community infrastructure projects.

The program is made possible through the support of NSW clubs, local councils and the NSW Government. Successful applicants are required to submit a closing report to the funding club upon completion of the project.

In 2019 Club Rivers received a request for support through the ClubGrants program for a documentary project planned by the history students at St Clare’s College Waverley on the Lost Diggers of Fromelles.

The Board of Club Rivers believing this would be something very special decided to play a small role in seeing this project come to life.

To all involved, and particularly the young ladies at St Clare’s College Waverly we congratulate you on producing this lasting tribute to the men who gave their lives at Fromelles and who had been forgotten for so long.

The Lost Diggers of Fromelles

In memory of the soldiers who gave their lives at the Battle of Fromelles – July 1916

 St Clare’s College students, in collaboration with one of Australia's best-selling non-fiction authors and TV broadcaster, Patrick Lindsay launched an extraordinary documentary on Wednesday 21st April which aims to restore the dignity of the diggers who were buried in the mass grave at Pheasant Wood following the Battle of Fromelles which took place on July 19, 1916.

Patrick Lindsay first teamed up with St Clare’s in 2018 when he had the idea to create a film that told the story of Fromelles through the eyes of young women today. He has mentored the students through the process of creating the documentary over a period of nearly three years and the final product is a tribute to his and the students, dedication to the project. Giving a voice to the families who lost so much, the documentary features relatives of the missing diggers who reflect on the enormous loss caused to their families by the death of their loved ones in the fields of Fromelles. Drone technology is used to outline the immense obstacles our soldiers faced as they were sent across the fields to attack the German trenches.
