The Melbourne Unicorns Foundation was established in 2012 with the objective of building and administering a fund for the long term development and prosperity of the Melbourne Rugby Union Football Club. This foundation will provide a pathway for supporters to help ensure our Club’s ongoing development and continued prosperity.
The Melbourne Rugby Union Football Club has a long history. Officially established in 1909, we can trace our history back to the Melbourne Rugby Union banner in early 1888. Our Club continues to grow, providing a positive Rugby Union experience for our members – from the under sixes to the 1st grade Premier division and for the local community. We offer access to one of the best playing surfaces in Melbourne, along with clubrooms and a gym. We have much to be proud of as a Club. We offer our member’s opportunities to build friendships, contribute to our strong club spirit, and gain positive experiences that last a lifetime. To maintain our Club culture, and to capitalise on our continuing success and growth, we need to build our financial strength. Our strong and rapid growth has made it difficult to set funds aside for our future. Without such financial strength our ability to provide future generations with at least the same opportunities and benefits as past and current members enjoy is not assured.
