  • Sport4Everyone. A small grants programs dedicated to initiatives that help increase participation in grassroots and community sport across Australia.

ASF is also responsible for distributing money raised by the Playing for Purpose raffle to clubs for relevant charitable grassroots sporting projects.

In recent times the ASF has been able to assist individual athletes through direct donations.
