The Western Bulldogs Community Foundation is the community services arm of the Western Bulldogs Football Club. It is registered as a PBI (Public Benevolent Institution) with DGR (Deductible Gifts Recipient) status and has its own Board.

Western Bulldogs Football Club has a long and proud history of being the Community Club of the AFL. The mission of our football club is to be the community where people are at their best. The club has a role in supporting people to be their true selves and that people will be accepted regardless of their gender race or faith. This is a mission that goes beyond the code and at the core of why the Western Bulldogs Community Foundation was set up to ensure the community work of the Western Bulldogs remains ongoing and sustainable.

The foundation works in partnership with government, corporate and community agencies to deliver services and programs that endeavour to improve social capital and the quality of life of people living in the Melbourne’s West through to regional western Victoria.
