Whilst providing a place of enjoyment for our Members and Guests is the focus for us as a club, the primary function of the company is to propagate sport in the Illawarra, in particular Rugby League. This is achieved by adhering to our key strategic fundamentals:
The Steelers Club provide financial assistance through the Club Grants program to the Dragons Dynasty Fund, Rugby League in the region, registered charities and other fundraising activities. In addition we provide accommodation to the Illawarra based Dragons administration, Illawarra Cutters administration, Illawarra Coal Rugby League administration and Illawarra Junior Representative staff. The Steelers Club also support local sporting teams by donating the Steelers facilities with complimentary room and equipment hire.
The Steelers Club is an active supporter of the Men of League Foundation. The Men of League Foundation supports members of the rugby league community who have fallen on hard times. They provide practical assistance with everything from medical operations, rehabilitation and nursing equipment to welfare support, grants and scholarships. For more information click here.
Through the initiative of Steelers Club staff, we support the Australian Literacy & Numeracy Foundation (ALNF) Wall of Hands campaign. The Wall of Hands movement has helped the ALNF reach thousands of children in some of the most disadvantaged communities in Australia. Each week staff donate a nominated amount from their salary to be donated to the campaign. In addition donation boxes can be found located in the club.

As a commitment to the Illawarra Steelers Club's vision to be economically and environmentally sustainable, a Sustainability Team has been established to facilitate a shift towards sustainable business management practices and align with the club's overall strategic focus to propagate Rugby League in the Illawarra. The Steelers Sustainability Team is pivotal to delivering upon internal sustainability objectives and goals, as well as engaging with external stakeholders to shape sustainability in the broader context of the community. The role of the Steelers Sustainability Team is to provide leadership, coordination and guidance to the integration of sustainability into the Illawarra Steelers Club, including the administration of initiatives and projects designed to meet the club's sustainability objectives and goals.
