Giving Day Details

The money raised will directly contribute towards lowering player levies with donors having the ability to decide which Australian team to donate to. In conjunction with the Australia Sports Foundation, this is all possible.

Donors can be fully confident that their donations are going directly to the cause they are supporting, as Softball Australia’s use of the funds towards the travel funds listed above is required to be acquitted to the Australian Sports Foundation.

The Australian Sports Foundation is Australia’s leading non-profit sports fundraising and charity body that has been helping athletes, sporting clubs and organisations fundraise for more than 35 years. They have helped thousands of clubs, players and organisations raise hundreds of millions of dollars for all levels of sport through philanthropic investments, building stronger sports communities.

Get giving today to show our athletes the strength and support of our softball community!
