Australian Sports Foundation - Port Macquarie's Junior Development Program
The Australian Sports Foundation was established by the Federal Government in 1986 with the mission to raise money for Australian sport.
For over 30 years it has helped clubs and organisations from the grassroots and community level, to professional and elite national level, and individual athletes to fundraise for sport. It has helped raise over $300 million in additional funding for Australian sport which has resulted in more opportunities for people to participate in sport at all levels.
The Port Macquarie Golf Club has registered its Junior Development Program with the Australian Sports Foundation. This allows tax deductible donations to be made towards the program.
