Australian Sports Foundation

About the Australian Sports Foundation

We work with sports clubs and organisations, large and small, and from all over the country, to help raise money for Australian sport.

We partner with grassroots and community organisations right through to elite and national levels to help raise funds for vital projects – projects that will help improve the health of our nation, build our communities and strengthen our national sporting identity. Partnering with us means that donations of $2 or more are tax deductible, which is a real benefit to donors and makes fundraising easier.

Why are we raising money?

The Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania conducts a range of weekly off-the-beach and trailer-able yacht events. The Club’s launching ramp and associated infrastructure is dated and no longer meets the amenity and safety needs of members.

Our fundraising plan is to secure sufficient donations to fund the majority of the project to update the launching ramp and install a pontoon to assist participants to board and alight from their boats in a safe manner.

The ramp will be used to launch and retrieve rescue craft, members’ powerboats and trailerable sailing boats. The refurbished surface will extend further into the water to allow boats requiring more depth to launch at any state of the tide, removing a limitation to the Club’s rescue capacity.

Please make a tax deductible donation today to see this much needed project come to fruition.
