Cricket NSW have put together a working group alongside colleagues from Cricket Australia and Queensland Cricket to best understand how we can support our staff, volunteers and players who have been affected by the flood crisis.
Our first priority is the safety and wellbeing of those in our community, and our community cricket staff are working diligently with clubs and centres in relevant areas to understand their needs.
CNSW has also set up a donation portal via the Cricket NSW Foundation, the charitable arm of Cricket NSW, that will allow for donations to the Foundation or to individual Cricket Associations.
The funds raised will be to help support Cricket Associations across the state who have been affected, in an effort to ensure that our Cricket Communities are able to welcome their players, coaches, volunteers and spectators back to their grounds, to their training facilities and club houses.
To achieve Cricket NSW’s purpose of inspiring everyone to play and love cricket, our cricket communities need to have the resources to accommodate their players and these funds will be crucial to the rebuilding process to ensure cricket can be played again.
You can choose to donate to a specific association or to our general page where money will be distributed according to need. Any donation of $2 or more is tax-deductible so please donate today.

Cricket Australia has also confirmed that Round 2 of the Grassroots Cricket Fund has been extended and will remain open for 4-6 weeks for applications from clubs/centres in flood impacted locations, with application assessments and payments prioritised and expedited.
