Community Engagement

St Marys Rugby League Club has an established and proud reputation of supporting a wide range of charitable, community and sporting organisations, significantly enhancing the social well-being of our local community. With community funding far exceeding the legislative requirement, this year $750,000 was distributed through various programs and for a wide variety of projects.

The beneficiaries of this funding range from local schools, high needs charities, social welfare organisations, sporting and social clubs, all of whom have delivered substantial, positive outcomes for our local community. To view a list of all the latest SMRLC donations, click here.
