The National Rugby League (NRL) receive hundreds of requests for donations and/or assistance from many worthy charities and organisations each season. The game is committed to assisting charities and community organisations that meet the goals of the NRL Community Strategy. 

The NRL receives many requests from individuals who have fallen on hard times. Whilst we will endeavour to assist as many of these people as possible, the individual’s relationship with the game will be a factor in assisting requests.
