AUSTRALIAN SPORTS FOUNDATION JOINS MELVILLE ATHLETIC AS A FUNDRAISING PARTNER.

The Melville Athletic Centre (Melville Roar) is delighted to announce a partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation as a Fundraising Partner of the Centre to enable all donation made for the jumps track project to be fully tax deductible.

The Australian Sports Foundation has worked with sporting organisations for close to 30 years, helping raise money for Australian sport, with over $350 million being raised across its near 30-year history.

The Australian Sports Foundation has unique Deductible Gift Recipient status ensuring that all donations of greater than $2 are tax deductible.

The jumps track project is costing $62,405.00, with the Melville Athletics Centre currently contributing $30,000.00 with the support of Clubs. A Community Sports and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF) application is being process, however the City of Melville are not able to contribute to the funding of the track. It is hope DSR will provide their one third of the project cost as part of the CSRFF application.

The Melville Athletics Centre has created an overarching “Melville Athletics Jumps Track Project Fund” that will see money raised put back into the replacement of the jumps track and the relocation of the top jumps pit.

“Australian Sports Foundation have great experience and offer a unique partnership in the market and it will be great to work in partnership to raise the funds required to complete the replacement of the jumps track.”

The Melville Athletic Centre offers a warm thanks to all individuals and businesses who give generously to support the Athletics Centre to move forward with the replacement jumps track, improving the completion and training environment and athlete participation.
