Raiders Foundation

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 was established in 2019 in partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation and ensures the ongoing success of the club driving growth both on and off the field. 

The Raiders Foundation is fully funded by our generous donors and benefactors. This foundation gives our loyal members, fans and supporters a chance to directly contribute to the club and play a significant role in the sustained success of the emerging, current and future raiders both on and off the field. 

The following is a short video on the Raiders Foundation.

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.
