Holden Home Ground Advantage

Sporting clubs or community organisations that run or support sporting activities can apply for the Holden Home Ground Advantage grants. There's $250,000 in cash grants up for grabs, plus a new initiative: apply for eBook vouchers, that you can then sell for $5 each with 100% of the proceeds going straight to your club.

From the Holden website here is a brief summary of each aspect.

1.     Got a big project? $250,000 in cash is up for grabs

What grants will be available for clubs through Home Ground Advantage?
You can apply for any amount up to the full $250,000 – but it would have to be absolutely incredible to be successful. Keep in mind, the average value awarded so far is $12,500. We want the grants to have the biggest impact they can. Closes March 31 2018.

2.     eBook vouchers

With so many worthy clubs applying for a Home Ground Advantage grant, we've been inspired to develop a new initiative that your sporting club can benefit from. Your sporting club can apply for eBook vouchers, that you can then sell for $5 each with 100% of the proceeds going straight to your club. Your club will receive as many unique-coded voucher cards as requested*, free of charge as well support material to assist in selling the tickets.

The eBook voucher entitles the purchaser to download a 'Great Getaways' eBook, full of amazing driving escapes across Australia. Plus, they'll be able to go in to the grand prize draw to win a new Holden.
*Maximum 500 vouchers per club
