OLD SCOTCH FOOTBALL CLUB FOUNDATION
The Old Scotch Football Club Foundation has been established to position the club best to deliver sustained success on and off the field.
Since 1921 the club has always honoured and respected the Australian game that Scotch was so instrumental in founding. Our commitment to the ideals of being good at sport and being a good sport are as strong today as they were back then. While our premiership players might be ‘shorter in wind as in memory long’, the club is as committed to on field success today as it has always been.
The Old Scotch Football Club aims to create an endowed fund ($1M) that will provide a reliable and growing income stream. To achieve this aim, the club is seeking 100 Foundation members who, by the club’s centenary year in 2021, will commit to a five-year tax deductible OSFC Foundation membership pledge at any of the following levels:
OSFC FOUNDATION MEMBERSHIP LEVEL
5 YEAR COMMITMENT
Donations will be recognised by category on a permanent official OSFC Foundation Membership Board in the clubrooms and with an OSFC Foundation membership certificate.
In the short term, funds raised by the Foundation will be used to assist with the operating costs associated with running the club. The introduction of paid staff has been necessary to ensure the club is best meeting and serving the needs of our members. The costs of running a quality coaching program have risen significantly in recent years, as have costs associated with compliance, insurance, ground hire and administration.
