Balgowlah RSL Memorial Club has a long standing tradition of providing local community support. The list of: charities, social welfare, youth, health, sporting, community safety, schools, environmental and volunteer groups, continues to grow each year.

Under the Club GRANTS scheme, registered Clubs in NSW also provide support to their local community in the form of cash donations and/or goods in kind. Category 1 and Category 2 grants are applied for separately, based on the needs and the requests presented. Club GRANTS guidelines were introduced in November 2012. These guidelines provide information from councils and other community minded organisations to Clubs, regarding the needs of the local community, working with the Club to assist in making recommendations on how best to grant Category 1 funding to their local community.  To view the current list of supported community groups click here.
