Australian Rugby Foundation

Australian Rugby Foundation
Rugby's National Fundraising Body

The Australian Rugby Foundation (also known as the ARF) was established in 2014 as the sport’s National Fundraising body. We work at the very heart of Australian Rugby and are passionate about supporting participation across every level. Our role is to support the growth and future success of Rugby investing in all levels of the game from grassroots to the elite through our strategic pillars:

  • Community Rugby
  • Women in Rugby
  • Indigenous Rugby
  • High Performance Rugby
  • Player Welfare

We generate funds through encouraging philanthropic giving (tax-deductible through our fundraising partner, the Australian Sports Foundation), Domestic and International events which increase engagement throughout the Rugby community as well as targeted cause promotions.
