The Launch of the Wyong Roos Foundation

It always has and always will be a focus of the Wyong Rugby League Club Group to assist the local communities. To enable us to do this effectively we have created a Foundation and formed a committee of people who share our vision of continuing to care and support our community.

The Wyong Roos Foundation strive to invest in projects that are going to improve the lives of people within our immediate community who are facing challenges or are disadvantaged, whether it be socially, economically or physically. The committee consists of 8 members, all sharing a close relationship with the Wyong Rugby League Club Group and a passion for helping the direct communities surrounding our venues. The Foundation allows the Wyong Rugby League Club Group to focus on assisting smaller groups who attract little funding and assistance from government and large charitable organisations and who aren’t big enough to generate significate fundraising income of their own.

The Foundation likes to ensure that our focus and our vision is met when providing funding, therefore the committee has discussed and agreed upon the following funding guidelines.

Criteria Outline

The following criteria is provided as a basis of funding eligibility:

  • The applicant can either be an individual, a group or a volunteer organisation
  • The applicant needs to be situated or located in a local government area within which the Wyong Rugby League Club Group has a venue or venues
  • The applicant is unable to seek all necessary funding through other channels
  • There must be no administration costs tied to a funding request

Public School Breakfast Club Support

Breakfast has always been known to be one of the most important meals of the day. In attempt to assist students who for various reasons are unable to have breakfast prior to starting their school day, the Wyong Roos Foundation has created partnerships with a growing number of Public Schools on the Central Coast to provide financial assistance to their existing Breakfast Club programs.

A donation of a commercial toaster and a new fridge were made to the Breakfast Club at The Entrance Public school in 2018.  The children and participating teachers were thrilled with their new appliances, and enjoy being able to continue providing breakfast each morning.

In 2019 a microwave was donated to the Breakfast Club at Toukley Public School, which was well received.
