The Melbourne University Women's Football Club (MUWFC) has set up an Operations Fund, where donations will be used for operational items that support the day to day running of the Club.
In doing so, we have partnered with the Australian Sports Foundation to enable donations to the MUWFC Operations Fund to be fully tax deductible!
In 2020, we will be fielding two teams in the Victorian Amateur Football Association (VAFA), as well as working with Melbourne University Sport to field teams at the Australian University Games and other intervarsity matches. MUWFC teams will be competing in the VAFA Premier B and Premier B Reserves competitions.
The cost of running an amateur football club continues to rise each year, with expenses expected to approach $50,000 this season. While our committee are volunteers there are major costs we encounter on an annual basis which we cannot avoid, they include:
VAFA Affiliation Fees (>$15k)
Coaching Department (>$13k)
Football Department (>$8k)
Medical Expenses, Insurance, Ground Rental, Equipment purchases
Whilst we have great support from sponsors and Club members, our growth and progress up the grades is confined by our limited budget.
To assist in our quest to continue climbing the ranks in the VAFA, please support the MUWFC Operations Fund by making a tax deductible donation today!
