Since 1982 The Canberra Raiders have developed a proud history in the region and become an important part of the community. We have however reached a time in our life‑cycle where we need to grow and cement our place in this City’s future.
The Raiders foundation has been established in partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation, that ensures the ongoing success of the club driving growth both on and off the field.
The first fundraising project for the Foundation is assist with the fitting out of the currently under construction CDRL Centre in Braddon.
This facility will enable the Raiders to be an outstanding sporting entity, with access to world-class infrastructure, that will build, attract and retain the best available talent from the Capital Region. Additionally, the CDRL Centre will provide benefits to individuals and communities across the ACT, Southern NSW and Riverina through football operations and the delivery of a diverse Community Support portfolio that encompasses health and wellbeing initiatives (e.g Mental Health Awareness and Respect Program) and social inclusion initiatives (e.g. Indigenous and Female Participation Programs).

Australian Sports Foundation (ASF) Background: The Australian Sports Foundation (ASF) was established by the Australian Government in 1986, after the Australian Sports Commission Act 1985 called for the creation of a company to support the development of sport in Australia. Their mission is to raise money for Australian sport. Donors complete an ASF donation form, allowing donors to use ASF’s tax deductible status to claim tax relief for any donation of $2 or more, then ASF grant these monies raised to the nominated project.
