2017 End of Year Review

The Australian Rugby Foundation is now in its third year of actuality, with fundraising activity, communication and exposure greater than ever. Highlights for 2017 include being able to grant, on behalf of our donors, $850K across our 5 pillars of support. In particular, our support of Women’s rugby (Wallaroos) and Indigenous rugby.

This year, we wlecomed Peter Murphy as Executive Director to the Foundation. Peter shows great passion for both fundraising and the game of Rugby.

I would like to extend my thanks to fellow Board members for their ongoing support, guidance and willingness to contribute to the foundation.

Thank-you to each of our donors, who without, we simply would not be able to re-invest in our sport as we do. To our corporate network- your support of the ARF's events and cause is invaluable. Finally, i would like to acknowledge the work of the office staff whose contribution and administration of our cause, is undertaken with professionalism and passion.
