Future Fund

WHAT IS THE FUTURE FUND?

The OGFC Future Fund, managed independently of the OGFC, shares a vision with the OGFC of being the most respected club in the VAFA and has a mission of building, wisely investing and making prudent distributions from a significant future fund to the OGFC. A significant future fund will be the powerful foundation from which the OGFC strives to improve our men’s and women's facilities, our club operations and our player physical, mental wellbeing and career programs. Your generous donation-pledge will ensure future generations of young men and women continue to enjoy the camaraderie, friendships and support our great club provides.

All donations are fully tax deductible through our partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation (ASF).
