Sport4Everyone is a grants program of the Australian Sports Foundation, funding projects and activities that increase participation in grassroots and community sport through small grants. Funds for our 2019 program were raised through the Prime Ministers’ Sporting Oration (PMSO) held in November 2018. We thank our generous sponsors, partners and donors who contributed to the success of the inaugural event. Sport4Everyone provides grants of up to $10,000 for projects and activities that will positively impact one or more of the four focus areas outlined below. The grants are to help individuals and communities increase sporting participation regardless of background or ability.
