About the project

Proud to Belong, Proud to Give is an integral part of Melbourne Football Club’s response to the $5M impact created by the COVID-19 shutdown.

Melbourne members are amongst the most loyal supporters in the league, standing their ground and showing great strength throughout the COVID-19 period, to help ensure the viability of the Melbourne Football Club. 

However, we know our members have greater aspirations for the Melbourne Football Club than just near-term viability. By filling the $5M void quickly, we can return our focus to fulfilling your aspirations and becoming a club of size, significance, and strength.  

Proud to Belong, Proud to Give is your opportunity to play a critical role in driving the Melbourne Football Club towards achieving the ambitious targets laid out in our 4-year strategic plan

The quicker we recover from this crisis, the sooner we can resume investing in the strategic priorities of eliminating debt, improving membership services, investing in innovation, investing in expertise in our football department and building club facilities. 

This is a unique opportunity to shape the Club for the next generation. Together, we can ensure the Melbourne Football Club rebounds strongly in a post-COVID environment.  

Through our fundraising partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation, donations made to the Proud to Belong, Proud to Give campaign are tax-deductible.

If you are in a position to help, we are calling on all members to go above and beyond by donating to this cause, to support our plan to reignite the Demon Spirit and create a club where all our people feel proud to belong.
