Category 2: Expenditure on other community development and support services. Traditional areas of club expenditure, such as support for sport and recreation groups. Non-profit cultural activities or non-profit visual and performing art activities and programs (Guideline reference 2.2.3)
Category 3: Expenditure is that portion of a registered club’s gaming machine profits over $1 million which is paid into the Club Grants Fund to the NSW Government on behalf of the club to support and develop, by way of grants, large scale projects or services associated with sport, health or community infrastructure.
