We Love Our Community

A vital part of the Canberra Southern Cross Club’s ethos is contributing to our community. Every year we provide support to over 350 local community groups, schools, and charities, providing over $1.5 million in support.

Our goal is to demonstrate our commitment through the support of local events and activities that benefit the Canberra community as a whole.  Community Giving has been a major part of what we do since our establishment in 1972.

We have 5 key programs through which we supply cash, food, and services in kind to
our community:

 

Due to the impact of Covid-19, the Canberra Southern Cross Club Board has regrettably made the decision to defer our Community Key Partner program for the 2020/21 financial year, and place a further hold on our Community Grants, Welfare and Sports programs until September 2020.

Our Community Rewards program will continue to run and applications are open for consideration. Please note we are placing a cap on the number of groups we can offer the Program to in 2020/2021.

Of course we dearly look forward to providing continued support to you the best we can. Thank you for your continued support of the Canberra Southern Cross Club.

If you require assistance, please email Tara Coon

Community Rewards

The Community Rewards Program uses the mechanic of nominating a Community Group participating in the program, to calculate the equivalent of 7.5% of the member’s spend on food and beverages at our Woden, Tuggeranong, Jamison and Yacht Club to be donated to that group. Donating up to a $20,000 per group cap, funds are calculated monthly and distributed quarterly. View the list of groups
