The Foundation is an entity independent of Blackheath Golf Club Limited that has been created to assist in securing the Club's future.
Aims & Purpose
The Foundation’s initial function was to build a capital sum preserved at all times to provide income for the aims and objectives of the Golf Club. Those objects include maintenance and development of the golf course and the golf clubhouse. The capital sum is accumulated by donations from members and friends of the Golf and Community Club.
Since the Foundation’s launch, the Australian Sports Foundation has allowed tax deductable donations for specific golf club projects approved by them. In recent times there have been a House Improvement Fund and Course Improvement Fund (now amalgamated into the Development Fund) and more recently a Flood Relief Fund taking advantage of this relaxation. Details of our funds are listed below.
All donations to support the Foundation are strictly voluntary.
Donations to the Foundation are tax deductible if made by payment through the Australian Sports Foundation and may be made by instalments over five years.

Donations can be directed to the following operating funds:
- Capital Fund : Donations are retained in the fund and only interest earned on donations can be spent on course and clubhouse projects
- Development Fund: Donations will be applied in full to course and clubhouse improvement projects.
- Flood Relief Fund: As a result of Covid and multiple adverse weather periods, the Club has suffered substantial revenue losses in both the clubhouse and golf course and water damage to the golf course. Donations will be used to assist in meeting operational costs and rectification of course damage.
