Supporting our communities

We’re getting back to basics with our Grassroots Giving program, designed to support members, their communities and the causes they’re passionate about – all right here in SA.

How can we help, you ask? 

  • We award funds of up to $5,000 to each successful applicant. 
  • Alternative options for giving include in-kind gifts, RAA-branded merchandise and volunteering opportunities.

What you need to know

Our Grassroots Community Giving Program has two rounds each year. You can only apply online for funding up to $5,000 (GST included).

Our key areas of focus include:

  • helping disadvantaged and/or vulnerable South Australians
  • supporting youth development
  • supporting and celebrating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and reconciliation activities
  • reducing inequality in the community
  • community safety
  • innovation
  • environmental sustainability.

These areas of focus highlight our values while supporting the needs of our fellow South Aussies.

How do I apply for a grant?

Our Grassroots Giving program offers two rounds of grants throughout the year.
