Community

What makes the Wagga RSL unique?

We care – and we put our money where our mouth is.

Nearly half a million dollars was donated to a variety of community causes this past year. Think sport activities, health, schools, aged care, youth service and helping those in need… And we’re proud to say that this funding grows annually.

We emphasise the spirit of social responsibility and giving back – and our aim is to work together with the community to achieve worthwhile benefits for those who need it most which is fitting with our vision statement below;

“To provide an exceptional experience for our community whilst protecting our traditions and our future!”

Donations

Over $580,000 was donated to either sporting, community activities, counselling services, aged, disability or youth services, education, club facilities and in-kind donations over the last twelve months. A large proportion of this amount has been donated through Club Grants. The Club Grants scheme is designed to ensure that larger registered clubs in NSW contribute to the provision of front-line services and projects within their local communities.  There is always a focus depending on the needs of our community and this year the focus is mental health and domestic violence.
