Our Past - Heritage

Your gift will be used to support the preservation and celebration of our wonderful heritage and history. All organisations are richer for how they recognise and celebrate their history. At the Geelong Cats, we have a tapestry that sees a new chapter woven every year in this extraordinary club. Whether it be purchasing and displaying memorabilia; recognising past players and staff; or commissioning historical works – ensuring these treasures are accessible to our supporters. There are so many projects we wish to start – your gift will help these come to life!

Our Present - Community

We are in a unique position to make things happen in the community. We can open doors, create networks, lead change initiatives, advocate for progress, and leverage partnerships across industries and agencies. As highly visible members of the community, the club’s players, coaches and staff understand their unique public role and aspire to make a positive contribution to our society.

Each year we facilitate hundreds of community appearances; conduct footy clinics and visit schools and hospitals. Cats in the Community is made up by our 10 flagship programs which all have one central purpose - to build a better and healthier community with a special focus on youth. The flagship programs reach in excess of 50,000 individuals each year. These programs have been independently acknowledged as world leading, and the club wants to continue to invest and grow these renowned programs that serve the community so well.

Our Future - Football

The Geelong Cats are committed to remaining a powerful team to be reckoned with each and every year. There is a significant, ongoing requirement to improve and upgrade facilities from the day they are installed. Technology moves faster than anyone can anticipate, and it is the aim of the Cats to have cutting edge facilities for our players, coaches and support staff to ensure our club is at the pinnacle of athlete development.

You have the opportunity to assist us with maintaining the benchmark facilities and programs required for the Club and team to perform continuously at our peak.

Opportunities include:

  • High Performance Equipment Needs
  • Player Development Programs
  • Talent Identification Programs
  • Coaches and Football Staff Development
  • Sports Science Initiatives

Our aim each year is to win the premiership and contributions from donors will greatly assist us in achieving this.

Through our fundraising partnership with the Sports Foundation, donations through to the Foundation are tax deductible. We hope that you'll show your support for the Cats by donating today!

    The need for the Geelong Football Club in our community at times is quite underestimated. It can be taken for granted because it has been here for so long but for those who live and breath the hoops and just those who enjoy football, which is most people then it’s essential that our magnificent Club be strong and continue to support it’s community as we continue to support it. You are truly the beating heart of Geelong.
