The AOC is committed to Australia’s athletes and encourages the development of high performance sport through athlete support and funding initiatives.
The AOC spreads the Olympic spirit and ideals throughout the wider community through the work of the State Olympic Councils, the Australian Olympic Education Program, the Live Clean Play Clean drug education initiative and events such as the Youth Olympic Games.
The AOC is a non-profit organisation, independent of Government and Government funding other than contributions by State Governments to the Olympic Team Appeal. AOC Funding is derived from income distributions from the Australian Olympic Foundation, grants from the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the licensing and sponsorship activities of the AOC and fundraising by the AOC, State Olympic Councils and their Corporate Appeal Committees.
