At the heart of the RAS is a not-for-profit commitment to support the development of agriculture in Australia.
Revenue generated through the Sydney Showground business and events such as the Sydney Royal Easter Show allows the RAS to invest nearly $7 million back into agricultural programs, competitions, education and youth initiatives, and rural communities.
The RAS also has a charitable arm of the business, the RAS Foundation (RASF). The RASF aims to build strong, vibrant rural communities in NSW through investment in education, training and skills development by providing grants and scholarships. The RAS contributes a significant amount annually to the RASF to invest in these programs. The RASF also receives donations from individuals, corporates and foundations.
