General Community Clubs
Community clubs are not-for-profit, membership-based and community-orientated association of people. They are established by people with common interests to pursue and promote those interests.
There are approximately 1,400 community clubs operating in Queensland and together, they hold 3.4 million memberships, employ close to 27,000 people, return $670 million in cash and in-kind support for various community projects and generate economic activity valued over $2 billion in the Queensland economy.
By law, community clubs cannot make a profit, so any net surplus is reinvested in local communities in the form of better facilities for members, support for community groups and charitable groups and sponsorship and donations.
