More than just a football club, the Western Bulldogs has a long-standing history as the community club of the AFL.
The Western Bulldogs Community Foundation is the club’s community arm that utilises the trusted brand of our football club to deliver life changing programs.
At its core the Foundation delivers demonstrated impact in the areas of health and wellbeing, youth leadership, cultural diversity, social inclusion and community advocacy.
Across Melbourne and Victoria’s west, we reach over 20,000 community members each year including direct capacity building for over 4,000 participants in our targeted programs.
This critical work is underpinned by a whole of Club commitment that is strongly supported by all three levels of government and a range of corporate and community partners, and philanthropic supporters.
Our programs are independently and academically evaluated to ensure we meet the ever-changing needs of our community, and we are always evolving our content and delivery methods to be best practice.
We strive every day to create an impact that inspires.
