Cash4Clubs is a sports funding scheme, giving clubs a unique chance to apply for grants to improve facilities, buy new equipment, gain qualifications and invest in the sustainability of their organisation.
The Cash 4 Clubs scheme has given out sports grants to many deserving recipients and is committed to funding even more sports clubs in the future. With awards of £500 and £1000 available, Cash 4 Clubs gives away real money that can help your club.
Any sports club can apply as long as they are registered with their sports National Governing Body or local authority.
Funding is given to clubs on a discretionary basis, with a wide range of applications considered. Whether it’s an underwater camera for monitoring swimming technique, the re-surfacing of a tennis court, new kit for your rugby or netball team or extra training for your coaches, there is a very open policy to what we will consider.
No preference is given to the type of sport involved or the ages of people who will benefit from the project, but priority will be given to clubs that play an active role in their local community.
Funding can be requested for anything that will add to the sustainability and effectiveness of the sports club, including buying new equipment, improving facilities or helping members to gain coaching qualifications.
Examples of previously supported projects include the following:
Training for Coaches to ensure they are all level 1 standard.
Junior paddles and safety equipment.
Underwater camera for monitoring swimmers' technique.
Equipment for a golf club team.

How to Apply
Grants are chosen once a year by a diverse judging panel, who will consider funding based on many things including the quality and creativity of the application, the need for funding and the core aims of the club.
Making your application pop by using a video to show off your club and its members is a great idea to stand out from the crowd. You can either upload a video with your application or attach a video you have uploaded to Vimeo or YouTube.
