COVID-19 is devastating Australian sport—particularly community and club sports that rely on memberships, registrations and local sponsorships to keep the lights on.
Many sports clubs are closed. It will be difficult for many of them to re-open, and we don’t yet know how many clubs will be able to stay open with reduced funding and membership in the future.
At Gordon DCC we have not been immune to the negative effects of COVID-19 and have lost a great deal of our sponsorship revenue, which will create a very difficult environment in which to support all our players, coaches and supporters and get all teams on the paddock this season. Fortunately, we have managed our finances well in the past and will be able to keep the club running. However, in order to ensure we can continue to retain our coaching staff, support the continued growth of country players to the club, and maintain the full services of the club we have swung into a new fundraising drive from both Corporate and Individual sponsors and donors.
If you have been fortunate enough to survive this crisis somewhat intact financially, we would be very grateful if you could either consider taking up one of the attached Tax-deductible donor groups or making a simple tax-deductible donation to the club; We’ve had a number of past players and supporters already commit generous amounts to our First XI donor group but any donation will make a significant difference to the club.
For those of you that yourself or family members have been badly affected by COVID-19 we offer our sympathy, importantly our support and wish you well.

“The Herd” - - $100 per annum. Be a part of our community giving program and help GDCC stay on its feet coming into the 2021 season.
