Clubs get funding boost

Queensland’s AFL clubs have been given a boost of over $50 000 in the 2012 Australian Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaCHSIA)volunteer grants.

The grants aim to recognise the valuable work of Australia’s volunteers, providing funding to support and encourage volunteering.

Fifteen AFL clubs from across the state were successful with their application for the 2012 round of grants.
