FRIENDS OF WARRINGAH RUGBY FOUNDATION
The Friends of Warringah was reformed in mid-2010 and is a supporters group which provides financial support to Warringah Rugby Club.
In 2019, the Friends of Warringah established the Friends of Warringah Rugby Foundation Limited ACN 119 353 650 (the “Foundation”) and became a fundraising partner of the Australian Sports Foundation (“ASF”). The Foundation is registered with and conducted under the charter of the ASF.
The ASF was established by the Australian Government to raise funds through public and corporate donations for the development of sport in Australia. The ASF’s listing in the Income Tax Assessment Act (1977) means donations of $2 or more are tax deductible. Registration with the ASF allows donations to the ASF in support of the Foundation to attract tax deduction.

FOW PROJECTS IN 2018..
In 2018 the FOW invested over $15,000 into upgrading the WRC gym. This has been a huge factor in equipping the whole club with one of the best training centres in the competition.
As the WRC becomes the destination for many players around the world, the FOW assist in providing job opportunities and supporting relocation costs of our next stars.
COMMUNITY MEDICAL EQUIPMENT
With an ever growing rugby program in 2018, the FOW supplied the WRC and Pittwater Rugby Park with over $8,000 worth of on-field medical equipment.
COMMUNITY & CHARITY SUPPORT
The FOW were WRC's biggest off-field supporter in 2018 with supplying valuable funds in supporting community projects, Junior club assistance and the purchasing of tables and attendance at all WRC Charity events.
JUNIOR ACADEMY SUPPORT
In 2018 the WRC were the main financial contributors in running the Green & White Academy. This was the second year running and we saw over 280 kids register and take part in the academy which ran for 10 weeks.
After tragically losing one of our own in 2017, the FOW were first on call to provide financial support to players and staff needing assistance around counselling and welfare. This has stretched to players needing assistance in all areas off-field from dietary assistance to growing their skills in the workplace.
“During my time as the WRC General Manager, the FOW have played a crucial role in supporting special projects that have played a key part in our growth and success .”
