SportCares Communities of Care Grants
Looking for funding to bring a sports programme to the community you live or work in?
SportCares offers two types of Communities of Care (COC) grants to help individuals and organisations bring their programmes to the communities we serve.
Types of COC Grants
This grant, based on a one-year funding timeline, aims to develop the capabilities of community-based organisations to deliver sport-based development programmes and increase engagement in the community.
It is renewable yearly (up to a maximum of three years) and renewal assessment will be based on key performance indicators during past grant timelines.
This grant will be based on a three-year funding timeline, with the funding quantum decreasing each year.
To ensure continuity after the initial grant timeline, we encourage potential grantees to bring on board corporate partners or donors who can work with them to provide longer term funding support.
Our Key Focus Areas for COC Grants
Enabling Access: Creating grounds-up community initiatives to empower persons from vulnerable communities to thrive and have opportunities for meaningful engagement through sport.
Fostering Learning: Promote learning and conversations in the community, bringing attention to sport-based efforts that are impactful in uplifting the lives of the underserved and the vulnerable in Singapore.
Building Communities: Build networks in neighbourhoods across Singapore, using sport to reach and connect across social divides, promote volunteerism, and create a more inclusive sporting society.
Our Desired Programme Outcomes
Wellness: Participants experience increased psychological, emotional, and social well-being.
Values: Participants build positive values through sport.
Inclusion: Programme enhances a narrative of inclusion and strengthens bonds in the community.
