Since 1935, Canterbury-Bankstown has provided many of the greatest moments that the game of Rugby League has seen.
From the earliest days of the ’Berries’ through to the 80’s, 90’s and the current team led by Captain Josh Jackson, we have always been proud to represent our community on the national stage.
We’ve been known as the ‘Entertainers’, ’Dogs of War’ and the ‘Family Club’, all of which would mean nothing without the backing of our members, fans and community.
Now, as we face unprecedented pressure to survive in the toughest Rugby League competition in the world, we are launching the Bulldogs Foundation – an initiative that enables our family to make tax deductible donations to the club, helping us to unite and inspire our community through these tough times.
What is the Bulldogs Foundation?
The Bulldogs Foundation has been launched in partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation and will assist us in delivering projects which align with our club strategy and allow us to keep building for the future.
All tax-deductible donations and bequests will directly and significantly contribute to the club’s ongoing success. In the future this will be for specific projects and developments, however, the club currently needs your support in surviving COVID-19 and the challenge that it has created amongst sporting clubs around the world.
Funds raised during this time will go directly to the operation of the club, ensuring our staff can continue working towards getting the season back on track once current restrictions have been lifted.
Without initiatives like the Foundation, there is no guarantee that the Bulldogs will be able to operate at current levels, but your assistance will enable us to try.
How can I contribute?
There are three ways to contribute to the Bulldogs Foundation:
- Become a Donor: Make a stand-alone tax deductible donation of your choosing and directly contribute to the ongoing success of the club.
- Join Club 1935: Limited to 100 places, Club 1935 will ensure that the great legacy of the club continues with individual contributions of $1,935. The 1935 Club Patrons will be acknowledged for their contribution. To become a Patron of Club 1935 head to our Bulldogs Foundation Donation Page and select $1935 as the donation amount.
- Join the Premiership Patrons: Become one of the 17 Founding members of the exclusive Premiership Patrons with a requested donation of $15,000. The Premiership Patrons are invited to become part of an exclusive coterie group that will be acknowledged for their generous contribution to the club. To express your interest in this exclusive group please email Ania (Executive Assistant to Chief Executive & Chair) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Over the coming weeks, we will be announcing various initiatives to encourage community contributions to the Bulldogs Foundation. These will include Members only donation drives, social media campaigns and acknowledgement of early donors.
Thank you for being part of our community. We’ve always known how strong our family is, and that our fans are always proud to be a Bulldog.
