What is an Authorised Purpose?
An authorised purpose is an event, project, activity or item that qualifies for funding. Authorised purposes are the set of rules under which trusts operate, so that they are of benefit to the community and do not result in commercial or personal gain. These documents are individual from trust to trust, so be sure to familiarise yourself with them before submitting your funding application.
What is a bona fide sport?
A bona fide sport is a sporting activity, school, youth organisation or club which is affiliated to a regional and national body and has genuine standards and rules, which plays or meets on a regular basis as part of a significant competition.
This definition excludes sporting activities or clubs which are social in nature. For example, according to the above definition, social games between pub patrons would not be regarded as a bona fide sporting event.
Can an individual apply for a grant?
No, any application must come from a club or non-profit body. The application may however be for an individual to compete or participate in an event.
How do you define personal gain?
A grant may not result in any personal or commercial gain to the grant applicant, a site operator, or any other party (other than incidental gain). This means a material benefit (in money, goods or equivalent) to business interests or individual(s).
Will the Cuesports Foundation consider an application after the event has taken place or after items have been purchased?
No, grants must be approved before the purchase or event.
How is the grant paid?
Grants are direct credited into the applicant's bank account.
What about GST?
The allocation of funds is made by the Cuesports Foundation and is an unconditional gift. No portion is claimed as a deduction for Goods and Services Tax paid. If an applicant is GST registered, only the GST exclusive amount can be funded.
