  • WHAT ARE THE OBJECTIVES OF REDWHITEBLUE?

    RWB is a gathering of like-minded people to enjoy the fellowship of others through the spirit of Cede Nullius - never give up - as embodied in the red, white and blue of the Western Bullldogs Football Club.

    It is intended to host three functions per year, and possibly one special function (to be determined).

    The proposed functions are:

    • Cocktail reception prior to opening of AFL season
    • Winter lunch – mid season
    • Breakfast towards the end of the season
    • Special function post season
  • HOW IS REDWHITEBLUE CONNECTED WITH THE FOOTBALL CLUB?

    RWB is an initiative and activity of the Forever Foundation http://foreverfoundation.linux.predelegation.com/ (Please note the website is presently being updated).

    The Forever Foundation is a not-for-profit foundation established with the sole purpose of engaging in activities for the benefit of the Football Club and its future.

    The Forever Foundation’s motto is Today. Tomorrow. And Forever.

    The Foundation is managed by an independent Board of Directors (non-renumerated), all of whom have had a long and credentialed history with the WBFC, nee Footscray Football Club.  All Directors are members of the Club.  The Foundation is independently audited, and is registered with the Australian Sports Foundation (ASF).

    Funds that the Foundation raise through its various initiatives are directed towards the Club, for example, the Whitten Oval redevelopment, the replacement of equipment for use by the players, or in recent times, the production of the Historic Player’s Register.  This wonderful book can be purchased from the Bulldogs shop at the Whitten Oval.

    The Foundation was instrumental in raising substantial funds for the redevelopment of Whitten Oval which we all enjoy today.

  • HOW WILL IT GENERATE FUNDS?

    • $1,000 as initial contribution to become a Founding Member
    • $150 each year thereafter to maintain Membership
    • In addition, after first year, each Member to pay-as-you-go for functions attended Prices will be set and Members will be advised at the time of invitations being issued. Functions are intended to be run at cost recovery only.

    RWB is not intending to raise significant or substantial funds for the Club.  Its intention is to provide an environment for kindred spirits, who are enthusiastic about the energy and direction of the Bulldogs, to find a way in which they can associate with the Club.

    RWB is also intended to provide the opportunity to nurture people who have an interest in the Club but at this point of time do not want to be directly approached by the Club.
