About the project

Sturt Football Club was formed in 1901 and is a semi-professional Australian Rules Football club based in the suburb of Unley, South Australia. The club competes in the South Australian National Football League (SANFL) and fields teams in male (senior and junior) and female (junior) grades.

Our vision is “to be acknowledged in all respects as the premier club of the SANFL” and our mission is “the diligent pursuit of excellence and success through continuous club wide improvement”.

The Double Blue Foundation has been established to secure the long term future of the Sturt Football Club, as it is not about yesterday or even necessarily today, but rather that there will always be a tomorrow.

The Double Blue Foundation's aim is to assist the club in its endeavours to be successful on the field at all levels and in the process develop and grow the sport of Australian Rules Football in the community.

Sturt Football Club has partnered with the Sports Foundation, meaning donations to The Double Blue Foundation are fully tax deductible.

Donors can select a specific project where applicable (such as our recent Light Up The Blues project) or alternatively donations can be made to the overarching Double Blue Foundation.

Sturt Football Club is committed to excellence and funds raised through the Double Blue Foundation will be used for, but not limited to, the following critical areas:

  • Purchasing of new equipment
  • Upgrading of facilities
  • Building of new facilities
  • Participation or grassroots program funding
  • Development, next generation and pathway funding
  • High performance programs
  • Coaching and program staff funding

In the modern era, the costs involved with the development and growth of these critical areas of the club and the requirements to gain an edge in the highly competitive SANFL have grown significantly, so the support of donors and fundraising is an essential part of the club’s future success.

Now we need to do more than just compete with other club's, we need to resource every aspect of our club to the highest level to give our teams and the club we love the very best chance at success.

By donating to the Double Blue Foundation, you will be ensuring a strong and prosperous Sturt Football Club at all levels now and into the future.

Your generosity will make a big difference, so please donate today!
