Community connection

Local initiatives

We contribute to sporting organisations that develop kids’ sports skills and provide opportunities for them to play.

We like to focus on activities that improve the health and wellbeing of Australian children. We contribute to sporting organisations that develop kids’ sports skills and provide opportunities for them to play. Hundreds of sporting clubs across Australia benefit from the support of their local McDonald’s restaurant and in some states restaurants work together to support state-wide programs.

Macca's on your Team (VIC & TAS only)

Macca’s On Your Team, an initiative by McDonald’s restaurants in Victoria, provides essential sporting equipment to cricket, basketball and AFL community clubs across the state. The program sees McDonald’s partner with Cricket Victoria, Basketball Victoria and AFL community leagues to ensure children have access to inclusive sports programs and lead an active lifestyle.

Macca's Junior Sports Grants (WA only)

Western Australian McDonald’s restaurants support grassroots sport in the state through the Macca’s Junior Sports Grants. The program supplies grants to schools or clubs who apply to provide basic sporting infrastructure for an activity which is likely to encourage kids to participate in sport.

Little Athletics

Macca’s restaurants are a major supporter of Little Athletics in New South Wales, Queensland and Western Australia. The relationship is designed to encourage more children to participate in this fun, active sport.


Swimming Queensland

Macca’s is also a major sponsor of Swimming Queensland. Together, we sponsor selected swimming meets and support programs designed to encourage children to compete and have fun.


South Australian National Football League

Macca’s restaurants in South Australia are the major sponsor of the South Australian National Football League junior development program. The sponsorship includes coaching clinics for kids of all levels. The goal of the junior development program is to increase participation in Aussie Rules and encourage more kids to be active.
