Giving Back


Members have the opportunity to donate their points to all sorts of charitable causes as part of the Community Points for Good programme.



We’ve proudly been part of the Tweed Coast community for decades. When we’ve been given so much support, it just makes sense to give back.

We back the charity work, sporting activities and personal interests of thousands of members of the Tweed Coast community, donating to and sponsoring a variety of groups each year, especially local initiatives.

From cash donations to the free use of room hire facilities, goods in kind or administration assistance, we’re always looking for new and meaningful ways to improve the wider community’s wellbeing. And we support our staff and members to do the same, because when we work together, great things happen.


ClubGRANTS recognises the responsibility clubs have to their community. It is designed to ensure that larger registered clubs in NSW contribute to the provision of front-line services to our local communities, directly supporting the disadvantaged in the community. ClubGRANTS also facilitates contributions by larger clubs towards infrastructure to support sporting, health and community activities.

We support a range of community groups and charities with our recipients changing each year.


Over the last three years, the number of Australians in crisis calling Lifeline has increased by more than 25%. Locally, since the 2022 floods and the ongoing recovery, demand for mental health services has increased. Lifeline has become an integral part of keeping the Australian community safe like never before. Based on population data, Lifeline estimates that approximately 4,425 crisis calls per year come from the Tweed Shire. Of these calls at least 167 people will be in such crisis that they require safety plans to be developed. Approximately 686 calls will go unanswered each year due to the demand on Lifeline’s services. This funding from Tweed Shire ClubGrants will fund 400 calls from the region.

Youth Music Venture & Veterans Music Venture, developed by Ian Grace and run by volunteers, are programs designed to build self-esteem, confidence, and camaraderie between youth aged 11 to 17 and veterans, both past and current.  Each program involves participants being formed into bands, mentored by professional musicians, with 8 weeks of rehearsals culminating in a final grand performance.

Each program aims to be totally inclusive regardless of socio-economic status, age, ethnicity, disability or other status and addresses social barriers or issues affecting the youth and veterans of today.
