Foundation Heroes


 


In 2008, Jim Stynes set the Melbourne Football Club one of the biggest challenges in its history. With the aim of eliminating a $5 million dollar debt, our Foundation Heroes group was established.

Since this time, and with further development, the generosity of the Foundation Heroes has seen the success of:

- Debt Demolition
- The ability in previous years to pay 100% of the salary cap
- Building a war chest in order to attract the best players to our club.

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

This group is already the most successful supporter group in the AFL, and Jim’s dream was to sign up 1000 Foundation Heroes. To become one of this very elite group, we ask for a one off $5000 payment, and welcome any additional contributions as you see fit. We also encourage our Foundation Heroes to help source new prospects in the drive towards the magic 1000 mark.

For your contribution, you will receive:
- An invitation to an exclusive annual event
- Footy Forum access
- AAMI Park tours
- Match day tours (MCG games)
- Priority access to the Club’s Work Experience program for family members (students aged 15-18)
- Priority access to the junior Guard of Honour on match days
- Regular newsletter correspondence and
- A wide range of further exclusive offers and recognition, including:

Honour board, yearbook and website listing, as well as an individually numbered Foundation Heroes certificate and lapel pin.
